December 27, 1968: Apollo 8 Safely Returns to Earth
On this day in 1968, Apollo 8 returned to Earth, landing in the Pacific Ocean after a six-day mission. Prior to launch, crewmembers Frank Borman, James Lovell and Bill Anders trained for only four months instead of the typical year. Apollo 8 was the first manned mission to orbit the moon and was able to complete ten lunar orbits. 
This week, forty-five years after Apollo 8’s live Christmas Eve broadcast, former astronaut and retired Captain James Lovell Jr. re-enacted the reading of Bible verses from Genesis at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry. Get the story from PBS NewsHour.
