apollo 12When you think of the things the first Apollo mission left on the moon, you think of the famous American flag; however, that is not the only thing that was left on the Bay of Tranquility. Neil Armstrong left a pair of his boots, a gold replica of an olive branch, tongs, four armrests, urine collection assemblies, a hammer, an insulating blanket, and… four defecation collection devices. Yes, Neil’s poop stayed back.

There’s a group of extreme heritage conservationists that are concerned about these items’ protection. They fear that one day soon, private enterprises will land on the moon and endanger the Apollo landing site. Their website says that the Federal Government isn’t concerned with their preservation right now and they want people to take action.
