What did Neil and Buzz plan to do if they could not return to Earth?

Two American astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, were the first humans to land on the moon on July 20, 1969, and then US President Richard Nixon became the first person to make a landline call to the moon. In the televised call, Nixon said the whole world was proud of Neil and Buzz’s actions and that because of them, heaven had become part of humanity.

At the same time, President Nixon is preparing to call Neil and Buzz the potential widows soon.

Although they successfully landed on the moon, known as the Sea of ​​Tranquility, it was unlikely that the two would return to the command module where Michael Collins was waiting aboard with the spacecraft. Returning to Earth will be the next step. In the face of such unforeseen circumstances, President Nixon has asked his speaker, William Safire, to prepare another speech entitled “The Tragedy of the Moon.”
