Quando Buzz Aldrin, o segundo homem na lua, estrelou os Simpsons, os escritores ficaram preocupados que ele ficaria ofendido com sua frase, "o segundo vem depois do primeiro", e ofereceu uma alternativa - "primeiro a tirar uma amostra do solo". No entanto, Aldrin preferiu a linha original e ela permaneceu no script.

Deep Space Homer

“Deep Space Homer” é o décimo quinto episódio da quinta temporada da sitcom de animação americana Os Simpsons, que foi transmitido pela primeira vez na Fox nos Estados Unidos em 24 de fevereiro de 1994. No episódio, a NASA seleciona Homer Simpson para participar de um vôo espacial para despertar o interesse do público na exploração do espaço e aumentar a baixa audiência dos lançamentos.

    It’s one of my favourite simpsons jokes. Buzz is also quick to point out that he was actually ‘equal first man on the moon’.

    One of my favorite anti-jokes, god bless Buzz.
