Bible Reading from Apollo 8 Featured
I recently found out that the crew of Apollo 8 whose mission back in Dec 1968 was to leave low-earth orbit, reach the moon, orbit and return did a pretty cool thing.
They were orbiting the moon on Christmas day and were told to do a broadcast, they asked what they should say and were told 'something appropriate' so after a lot of thinking they decided on reading from Genesis 1
In the begining.....
One out of four people in the world heard the broadcast including those behind the Iron Curtain where Christmas was illegal, how cool is that!
