I thought you may enjoy this musical tribute to the legendary Neil Armstrong, by someone called Melodysheep.

Very clever and quite nice, in my opinion.

Not my cup of tea but to each his own.

Question - as collectors we're very concerned with authenticity. That is, we're concerned that replica or counterfeit materials - patches, autographs etc. - are not mis-identified as original materials. Should this concern extend to media such as this video? Is there a chance some future person will cite this as an example of Neil's own work? I don't know the answer.

Did Neil actually refer to the Earth as blue and beautiful anytime? Does that fact matter, or does the use of the word tribute make it clear these thoughts are not Neil's?

The voice is, of course, Armstrong's — his speech has been autotuned and remixed into a song. The original "blue" and "beautiful" clips are from Armstrong's BBC interview with Patrick Moore in 1970.

The same artist, "melodysheep" (John D. Boswell) has put out a series of autotuned tributes under the "Symphony of Science" title, including collaborations with PBS to remix Reading Rainbow, Mr. Rogers and Julia Child.

I don't see a problem with it, and it's always good to promote spaceflight.

I assume family members were asked first though?

I would assume not, nor is the family's permission needed.

BBC would be the rights' holder to the footage of Armstrong, and it probably falls under fair use.
