This Christmas season marks an important anniversary in American and world history. It was 50 years ago that the Apollo 8 mission saw astronauts Jim Lovell, Frank Borman, and William Anders become the first men to leave Earth orbit, travel to the moon, orbit the moon, and safely return. The historic flight gave the crew a never before seen perspective of their home planet. Millions of miles from home for Christmas they delivered a message for everyone back on Earth
