Here’s my hot-take for you – if you’re not an amazing space ship pilot, don’t try and land on a dangerous planet, especially when flying something that takes “a little time to react to the engines” (i.e. a really fucking long time to react to the engines, so much so that you’re dead before you know it).

Look, I get it, landing on the moon isn’t easy. But nor is it any fun thanks to our good friend Cassette 50.

Quick hint to anyone designing a place for space shuttles to land on the moon: don’t make the parking space move around the surface. Just fix it in one position. Cheers.

If you ever want to land a spacecraft on the moon then call me. I’m your man for that. I won’t crash it. Oh no. I would never do that.

Er…on an unrelated note, anyone got the number for the space version of the RAC? Cheers.

The moon landings. Are they real or not? Well, to be honest if it’s this difficult then there’s no way they could have been achieved:
