Buzz Aldrin had a communion wafer and a small vial of communion wine that had been blessed by his pastor when he landed on the moon. After the lunar module touched down, Aldrin asked everyone to take a moment to give thanks in their own way. He then read scripture and took communion on the moon.
Aldrin, a Presbyterian, wanted the event to be broadcast back to earth. But NASA decided against it since the agency was embroiled with a lawsuit with atheist Madelyn Murry O’Hair.
