Three people have spent christmas the Moon on the flank

on christmas eve, 1968, mankind got a unique christmas greeting and an unforgettable christmas card (you move to another service). Apollo 8 -the ship's window, the photo taken of the earth rising Moon on the horizon.

the United states Apollo program had flown the first human Lunar orbit. Astronaut Frank Borman , Jim Lovell and William Anders were the first people who celebrated christmas in space.

the greeting in they didn't read the christmas gospel, but the Bible was chosen for a creation story, Genesis. Tv and radio are estimated to have followed up to a billion people. Upload verbatim content can explore the Us space administration Nasa (you move to another service) on the page.

the united states and the Soviet union went in the 1960s to harsh competition on who could first fly people to the Moon. Christmas not allowed to interfere with the flight, in which the united states was preparing to win. The grand prize came the next summer, when Apollo 11's two astronauts walked on the Moon.

the Race in spite of Apollo 8's astronauts were told to think about herself for a long time, what message would tell that it was intended for all the inhabitants of the Country.

after touring the moon ten times in the Apollo 8 launch the main engine of his to start the return journey to Earth. It was the apnea a place for kuuohjelmassa it was all new and critical phases of success was no guarantee.
