I was telling someone some time back, how I remembered watching "Splashdown" on TV when I was a Kid.
They thought I was talking about the name of some TV show.
When I explained that, no the Apollo missions landed in the Ocean, not on a runway, they stared at me in disbelief, and insisted that I was trying to pull their leg.
They walked away still convinced that I was lying to them.
What do they teach kids in school nowadays???

Yeah, My father worked for Bendix Aerospace and then NASA on the Apollo missions. I just met someone that still didn't believe we had landed on the moon. I explained that 12 people have walked on it, and my father has original photographs from one of the missions. Much like you said American Mel, he still didn't believe it!

Amusingly, a friend that I trained as a cnc programmer and engineer works at the place that makes the rocket booster cones for Space X. They are 3D printed! Super secret squirrel material and process.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll have to record it!

I will be standing in my front yard 132 miles west of the cape and be able if there are no clouds to see it zoom into space. We can definitely see the flame and the contrails for quite a while. When the shuttle was launching it put on quite a show especially a night launch.
My brother-in- law lives 12 miles south of the cape and almost any big launch vibrates his house!
