|December 24: On Christmas Eve, the crew of Apollo 8 — the first humans to orbit the moon — offer a message of peace in a TV broadcast from lunar orbit. Each crewman read part of the Bible’s Book of Genesis, and astronaut Frank Borman said, “Good night, good luck, a merry Christmas and God bless all of you — all of you on the good Earth.” Many think Apollo 8’s successful mission was a bright ending to a horrible year.
