This is True BS.

Neil Armstrong........ Priceless!


On July 20, 1969, as commander of the Apollo 11 Lunar
Module, Neil Armstrong was the first person to set foot on
the moon.

His first words after stepping on the moon, "that's one
small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," were
televised to earth and heard by millions, but just before he

re-entered the Lander, he made the enigmatic remark :-

"Good luck, Mr. Gorsky."
Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark
concerning some rival soviet cosmonaut.
However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either
the Russian or American space programs.

Over the years, many people questioned Armstrong as to what
the - 'good luck, Mr. Gorsky' statement meant, but Armstrong
always just smiled.

On July 5, 1995, in Tampa bay, Florida , while answering
questions, following a speech, a reporter brought up the
26-year-old question about Mr Gorsky to Armstrong.
This time he finally responded because Mr. Gorsky had died,
so Neil Armstrong felt he could now answer the question.
Here is the answer to "Who was Mr Gorsky?":


in 1938, when he was a kid in a small mid-western town , he
was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His friend
hit the ball, which landed in his neighbour's yard by their
bedroom window.


His neighbours were Mr. And Mrs. Gorsky. As he leaned down
to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky,

"Sex! You want Sex?! You'll get Sex when the kid next door
walks on the moon!"

It broke the place up.
Neil Armstrong's family confirmed this is a true story. Do
pass it on, it's too choice not to be shared

Homie,

While this is a funny story/joke, and while there're several different variations of this story/joke, that is all it is, a story/joke and is non-factual, Neil Armstrong never spoke those last parting words, this story/joke starting circulating around 1995 or there abouts and then was picked up by the media and isn't true.

For the actual words Neil spoke you can refer to the official NASA transcripts of the Apollo 11 mission, you will not find "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky." or any variation of those words (in some variations the last name of his "neighbor" is different) in these official Apollo 11 transcripts because Neil never said those words.

Also at the top of the transcripts is the following...

""[During November 1995, a clever (and slightly risqué) story was widely circulated on the Internet concerning a statement Neil is supposed to have made during the Apollo 11 EVA. At the suggestion of several readers, let me state that Neil never said "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky" at any time during the mission. Indeed, on November 28, 1995, Neil wrote for the ALSJ, "I understand that the joke is a year old. I first heard it in California delivered by (comedian) Buddy Hackett".]

And in parting, I watched his first step onto the Moon live on TV and heard what he spoke upon doing so!
