comment Is there any country(former colony) in the world that obtained independence and then again tried to join its colonist ruler?
What do u mean as "join its colonist ruler"? Do u mean only rejoining as a colony or to become a part of the metropoly's state or join some kind of union?

comment Was Alexander the Great Greek or Macedonian?
@called2voyage Macedonian is not a Hellenic language. It is as far from Greek as, say, Latin. At the time all Indo-European languages resembled each other much closely than they do today.

comment Was Alexander the Great Greek or Macedonian?
-1. Macedonian language is not a Greek dialect (although a related, Indo-European language), and Macedonians are not Hellenes by origin. Even though by the time of Alexander they already spoke common Greek, and Macedonian language went out of use.

comment What was the internal Soviet reaction to the moon landing?
You are wrong, they were very often mentioned in sci-pop literature. Regarding atheist propaganda, it worked as a "proof by independent party". Look, not only we, but also the Americans did not see angels there.

comment What was the internal Soviet reaction to the moon landing?
You failed tio mention that the landings to a large part were used to advance Soviet philisophical values as well. To support atheism, importance of labor and scientific progress, importance of peaceful space exploration and so on. My point is based not only on what Pravda wrote but also on a body post-factum publicistics sci-pop literature. I think this part was much greter than the efforts do downplay these events.
