I once heard a missionary who lived in Turkey talk about how he would often hear Muslim’s strongly insist that Niel Armstrong heard the call to prayer when he landed on the moon.  He grew so weary of hearing this (knowing that it wasn’t true), that he wrote to Niel Armstrong asking him to please verify if he had or had not heard the call the prayer on the moon.  A few weeks later, he recieved a letter from Armstrong’s personal assitant which verified that Armstrong had indeed NOT heard the call to prayer on the moon.  The missionary, knowing the Muslim stubborness of mind had the letter notorized which gave it an even more official flair.  Now, whenever he comes in contact with a Muslim who insists that Armstrong heard the call to prayer, he whips out his letter and puts an end to their claim!
