Moon Sport


In 1971, Alan Shephard and Edgar Mitchell made history when they became the first people to play sport on the moon. The Apollo 14 astronauts participated in what Mitchell later jokingly described as “the first lunar Olympics”. Shephard hit a golf ball while Mitchell threw a makeshift javelin – it was actually a staff they’d used in one of their scientific experiments.
Wow, that’s wild!🤯 Imagine golfing and throwing a javelin on the moon—talk about taking sports to a whole new level. I bet they had a blast in the low gravity. Moon Olympics for the win!
