Somebody had to stay up there and watch over the return craft, and Collins picked the short straw.

Problem was by the time they got to Apollo 17, people of the world were bored of it, and who remembers these astronauts names.

The program was then run down.

Indeed. The latter missions were still covered, but only after Apollo 13 told them the missions were still worth watching in case another helium disc blew out.

If you can't be ar**d with the whole thing start at 14.58

I'll bet there's an above average correlation between 'It was a hoax' and Brexiteers.

Well both statements make about the same amount of sense

Not so sure that Mike Collinsnh the short straw because he had a ride home had Eagle messed up. 

Watching it now, when Grayling couldn't manage building a railway, really drives home the cutting edge engineering at the time.

The on-board computer of the moon lander had 2048 words RAM (magnetic-core memory), 36,864 words ROM (core rope memory)

That was cutting edge in its day, but seen as somewhat basic, nowadays.
