Mission to the moon - salary

Post  CicelyS on Sat Nov 02, 2013 11:21 am

When astronauts went to the moon for the first time, you would think this big accomplishment would pay well for those who actually went to the moon, but surprisingly enough, their salary was only $8 (about $50 dollars modern time). For many this may seem like a lot of money, but if you put it into perspective, it's a very low salary for those men. From their mission they earned fame but not a whole lot of money as you would think. Afterwards they most likely gained more money from making history, being in books, and from their jobs, than they did whilst on the moon.

Wow! I never realized that it cost that much money to go to the moon. It was a really great achievement for mankind but we could have done so much more with that amount of money. Like you said though, in perspective, it isn't that much money considering what they did. Good job Cicely

WOW! That is super interesting, I think that it is a great accomplishment, imagine all the money that it cost! The reason for that is probably because before going to the moon they had to do years of studies. I would love to go to the moon!!! Great topic cic! thumbs up

You are right, it would be cool to be able to float in midair. It would also be nice to make that much per year for all of us. Then we could buy a lot of things.
