Please change the moonwalk question to “popularised” from “invented”. MJ was many things but a time traveller to the 1930s wasn’t one of them.

Neil Armstrong was actually supposed to say "That's one small step for a man..." but he missed the "a". NASA then tried to save face and claimed that "static" obscured the "a".

Save face? Was it that embarrassing? It seems to me like the quote can be understood with or without the article.

It can be understood, but it doesn't mean anything. If being understood was all they wanted, they could just release it as the slogan for the moon landing campaign, and Neil didn't need to say it at all. The point is, you want the very first words spoken on the moon to be perfect or it's a bad omen, and as it is, the fact that he messed it up was clearly very embarrassing or they wouldn't have covered it up.
