APOLLO 8 : THE MISSION THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING
by Sandler, Martin W., author.
J 629.454 SAN
"A nation in need of hope, the most powerful rocket ever launched, and the first three men to break the bounds of Earth: Apollo 8 was headed to the moon. In 1957, when the USSR launched Sputnik I, the first man-made satellite to orbit Earth, America's rival in the Cold War claimed victory on a new frontier. The Space Race had begun, and the United States was losing. Closer to home, a decade of turbulence would soon have Americans reeling, with the year 1968 alone seeing the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy as well as many violent clashes between police and protesters. Americans desperately needed something good to believe in, and NASA's mission to orbit Earth in Apollo 8 and test a lunar landing module was being planned for the end of the year. But with four months to go and the module behind schedule, the CIA discovered that the USSR was preparing to send its own mission around the moon--another crucial victory in the Space Race--and it was clearly time for a change of plan. In a volume full of astonishing full-color photographs, including the iconic Earthrise photo, Martin W. Sandler unfolds an incredible chapter in U.S. history: Apollo 8 wouldn't just orbit Earth, it would take American astronauts to see the dark side of the moon."--Amazon.

EARTHRISE : APOLLO 8 AND THE PHOTO THAT CHANGED THE WORLD
by Gladstone, James, author.
J 629.454 GLA
"Earthrise tells the story of the first time the planet Earth was photographed in color from space. The photo, later called Earthrise, was taken in 1968 by the astronauts on Apollo 8, the first US space mission to break free of Earth's orbit and circle the Moon. The Apollo 8 astronauts were surveying the lunar surface for places to land future missions. As they were charting the Moon, they happened to look up just as Earth, in a flash of color and life, was rising above the darkness of space and the dead rock of the Moon. The sight had a profound effect on the astronauts -- and the photo they took had a similarly profound effect when it was published back on Earth in newspapers and magazines. By making clear that Earth was, and is, at heart, a world without borders, a home to all peoples, the photo's mind-bending shift in perspective is credited for galvanizing the fledgling environmental movement and sparking hope in a year of global unrest. And, to quote from the last page of the book, 'in a time when people still struggle to live together in peace, that picture of the rising Earth is as powerful now as it was in 1968'."-- Provided by publisher.
