In anticipation of the 50th Anniversary of the historic Apollo 8 mission, the first to leave the close confines of planet Earth and venture to the Moon, Apollospace produced this short film, “Apollo 8: The Earth From Here.” 

In December 1968, a year marred by division and pain, human beings ventured farther out than ever before.  The crew of Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders became the first human beings to see the entire Earth, the lunar farside, and the first Earthrise. This short film uses the highest resolution, fully restored Apollo 8 photographs accompanied by contemporaneous radio transmission descriptions from the Apollo 8 crew.
