Armstrong photographed a panorama of the landing site when he was on the lunar surface alone.

Interview with General Thomas Stafford (Gemini 6, Gemini 9, Apollo 10, and ASTP)

On May 19th, I had the distinct pleasure of sitting down for an interview with the legendary Gen. Tom Stafford, at his name sake museum in Weatherford, OK, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the flight of Apollo 10.  General Stafford grew up in Weatherford and the museum and local airport carry his name.  The Stafford Air & Space Museum played host to an exclusive gala celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apollo 10 on May 18th.  Through the much appreciated efforts of Museum Director, Max Ary and his staff, arrangements were made for me to interview The General the next morning.

We set up the interview at the base of his actual Gemini 6 spacecraft, an incredible backdrop for our conversation.

Apollo 8: The Earth From Here

2019-03-11T18:38:19+00:00Categories: Apollo, Apollo 8, Apollospace Presents, Films|Tags: , , |0 Comments

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.
