Christmas Eve Broadcast from Apollo 8

I just ran across this. I don’t remember hearing about it in school. Back on December 24, 1968, the astronauts aboard Apollo 8 did a live worldwide broadcast as they viewed earth while orbiting the moon. At the end of the broadcast, they read from Genesis 1. Good thing they didn’t have anyone from the ACLU nearby. Listen to the broadcast.
