MSNBC Hosts Can’t Decide How To Butcher Armstrong’s Moon Landing Quote

MSNBC hosts Chris Jansing and Ayman Mohyeldin on Friday couldn’t decide whether the first all-female spacewalk was good for “womenkind” or “humankind.”

The morning show hosts welcomed a historic all-female spacewalk by bickering over how best to mangle Neil Armstrong’s famous words about landing on the moon.

“This is the first all-female spacewalk: NASA astronauts Jessica Meir and Christina Koch out of the station to replace a power controller. They’ve been out there since just after 7:30 this morning, so two and a half hours,” Jansing said. “They’re going to be there another hour or so. As one congresswoman put it this morning, one giant leap for womankind.”

Jansing expressed her enthusiasm by saying this opportunity was “very exciting” and that the network doesn’t report good news like this often. She then handed off the show to Mohyeldin, who was filling in for host Craig Melvin.

“I share that sentiment that it is one small step for man, but one giant leap for womankind, but also humankind to see something like that,” Mohyeldin said.

“One small step for man?” Jansing asked, appearing confused.

“Kind? Isn’t the original — or did I,” Mohyeldin said before Jansing interjected.

Jansing said the all-female spacewalk was “one small step for” before pausing and waiting for Mohyeldin to finish the sentence.

“Womankind and humankind,” Mohyeldin said.

The spacewalk was Koch’s fourth and Meier’s first, according to CNN.

‘Lucy in the Sky’ DP Shifts Frame to Show Inner Turmoil of Natalie Portman’s Astronaut

What drew cinematographer Polly Morgan to “Lucy in the Sky” was how Noah Hawley’s script so clearly illuminated the emotional breakdown of astronaut Lucy Cola (Natalie Portman) in a way that felt very insular: The visual cues were on the page — and conveyed an unusual approach to charting the character’s journey. “When things fall […]
