There is no need to post the most famous picture from Apollo 8: it is the Earth Rise over the moon. As a member of the team that put men there, this image was a stunning surprise that encouraged all of us to try even more to be successful with a landing. Personally, that picture still evokes all the emotions of that time: pride, humility, focus, and dedication. It is a deep personal success that I was part of it and that I contributed to that stunning picture.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
