Georges Méliès predicts Apollo 11 mission on death bed. #art

Back in 1902, when we still thought the moon was made of gorgonzola, Georges Méliès made a Jules Verne novel into the first Sci-Fi Blockbuster, A Trip To The Moon. Someone in Chelsea liked the movie enough to make an homage on their front gate to the famous scene of the moon getting Apollo 11 in the eye.

I looked at the National Air and Space Museum when we were there last (for Obama's inauguration) and didn't see any cheese on display, so I guess that settles it. No cheese on the moon.
