Did You Know?


An important segment has the astronauts detailing how gray and colorless the moon is. All of the Earth-bound scenes in this episode are filmed in black and white, while the astronaut scenes are in color. See more »


In this episode, Jim Lovell accidentally deploys the life vest in the Apollo 8 command module on the way to the moon. After some discussion of what to do, Frank Borman, a graduate of West Point, says in a gently teasing tone "Navy man." Bill Anders repeats the remark, also in a somewhat denigratory tone. This would most likely not have been something Bill Anders would have said, as he was a 1955 graduate of the Naval Academy, similar to Jim Lovell, who graduated in 1952. It is unlikely that a fellow USNA grad would disparage, even in teasing, a fellow USNA grad. See more »
