Tuesday Earthrise and Superman

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the moon, entered lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 1968. That evening, the astronauts--Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot Jim Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders--held a live broadcast from lunar orbit, in which they showed pictures of the Earth and moon as seen from their spacecraft. Said Lovell, "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. Image Credit: NASA

Ended up the day with the company at a uperman movie. You can see the earth and space from all directions at an incredible speed with lots of impacts.

Number 17 of the trust Psalms..
Psalm 25:2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.

God bless us with triumphant days.

    I saw a documentary in an IMAX theatre named Our Blue Planet. Earth is breathtakingly beautiful from outer space. So beautiful and so fragile. We are blessed to live here.
