But when they returned, Mission Commander Frank Borman told NASA, “There is no dark side of the moon, really. Matter of fact, it’s all dark.” Borman also noted that “the lunatic is in my head.” And so, Borman was sent away to a special NASA facility for all the astronauts who went insane in space (sadly, all of them). NASA later found a lava lamp and some black light posters of a prism in the flight module (not to mention a shit-ton of high-grade weed).
Turns out, there are some very strange coincidences about Apollo 8. If you start a recording of their conversations with Mission Control and the movie “The Wizard of Oz,” they sync up perfectly. Borman is Dorothy, Command Module Pilot James Lovell is the Tin Man, Lunar Module Pilot William Anders is the Scarecrow, while the Cowardly Lion’s voice is provided by someone only known as “Pink.” By the way, which one’s Pink? We may never know.
