TIL The Apollo 10 mission load-out was not QUITE the same as the Apollo 11 load-out.

They intentionally under-fueled the LEM because there was concern that if it was fully fueled, the astronauts might disobey orders and go to the moon.

Imagine that.

I want to live in that timeline.

@RexfordGTugwell @apLundell The Apollo astronauts where certainly still from the generation where this was a real concern.

@cinebox Hmmm... I had not heard of this show.

It seems like something I'd like. Thank you for mentioning it.
