Apollo 8 is the first manned mission to have the moon as its destination. It was the last and full scale rehearsal before the successful Apollo 11 mission.
Space and Exchange
- During that mission, an unexpected opportunity allows the 3 astronauts to take a shot of the earth rising above the lunar horizon. This photography would become a mythical picture of the 20th century. Everybody around the world would see it. It would be a great human exchange since it’s the first time humans see the Earth as it really is.
- It’s the first time in human history that people will actually go to the Moon. This is the discovery of a new space.
