NASA have continued to make no comment in response to claims Wales won the space race to the moon. Film reels recently retrieved from a redundant cinema in Bala have shown black and white footage of a top secret welsh rocket taking off from Cape Caernarfon in 1968, a year earlier than the famous american Neil Armstrong mission. This has added considerable weight to rumours the Welsh Space Agency rather than the Soviet Union where the americans main rivals in the race to the moon.
The welsh astronaut who allegedly was the true first man to walk on the moon surface was a certain Mr Max Boyce who went on to become the genius welsh comedian. Allegedly Boyce suffered considerable oxygen starvation due to a technical fault with his apperatus during his moon walk which explains considerably his later stage performances throughout the 1970's.
It is understood that astronaut Boyce left his trademark inflatable leek on the moon surface so that future space travellers would be aware of his nations amazing feat. Independent welsh lunar researcher Dr Llwelyn Glyndwr has analysed the tape recordings of Armstrongs 1969 visit, and after analysis claims Boyce's earlier visit was noted by Armstrong as he descended towards the lunar surface. Dr Glyndwr has replayed the american tapes and Armstrongs words are clearly heard...
This is one small step for man... (Armstrong catches glimpse of Boyce's inflatable)... one giant leek for mankind.
