Very clear memories of this:

Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the Moon, entered lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1968. That evening, the astronauts; Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot Jim Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders did a live television broadcast from lunar orbit, in which they showed pictures of the Earth and Moon seen from Apollo 8. Lovell said, "The vast loneliness is awe-inspiring and it makes you realize just what you have back there on Earth." They ended the broadcast with the crew taking turns reading from the book of Genesis.

:D 8-) 8-) 8-)



Roger that. Awesome.

Remember back when Tne Space Race was at it's height and every launch and splashdown was televised.


Sitting in the auditorium at Towson Elementary (on the floor, no chairs) with two little TVs showing the Mercury launches, especially the John Glenn flight.

I was also a nut for the space shuttle (although I never got off my arse to go to the Cape to really SEE and FEEL one).

On January 28, 1986, it was a frosty Florida morning. I had a good vantage point from a window at school for various launches. I went to look five times that morning, and each time the lift-off was delayed.

I missed the actually launch and its 73 seconds of flight before the o-ring disaster.

Then in 2002 I was at a conference in orlando, preparing to go outside to see if I could spot Columbia on its way to the Cape. That is the one that broke up over Texas.

God bless all who were involved in our push toward the stars (have we currently given up?), most specially to those who gave their lives.
