It was Christmas Eve, 1968. And the astronauts of Apollo 8 - Captain Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders - were participants in a mission that took them farther (500,000 miles) and faster (24,000 miles an hour) than any human had ever traveled. Apollo 8 was the mission that broke humanity's bond to the earth - it was the first manned vehicle to leave the earth's orbit. Although it did not land there, Apollo 8 was the first craft to orbit the moon. The mission was a triumph for America and its space agency, and assured the public's continued interest in exploring space. 'Genesis' is the true story of human character at its most inspiring.
