Default Apollo 8 Crew Remembers Historic Mission Live On NASA TV


The program features Apollo 8 crew members Frank Borman, James Lovell
and William Anders. It will be broadcast live from the Newseum on
NASA Television and www.nasa.gov on Thursday, Nov. 13, at 1:30 p.m.
EST. The Newseum is located at 555 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W.


I attended and managed to get a seat by being in line at 1230.....
and paying $20 to get into the Newseum.

It was enjoyable. Lovell told the story of his personal FUBAR,
but they were having good time always. Bill Anders was a little
more droll, but still good on the give & take.

They strongly endorsed the basis the effort was a Cold War surrogate;
not a science/technology driven effort.

Someone asked a UFO question....

Borman and Anders said they wished someone "would find a mission for
the station". Couldn't make it there, but got to watch the stream
from NASA.
