"In the beginning..."

I remember that December broadcast of the Christmas Apollo voyage, when the astronauts read from Genesis Chap. 1, and the earth rose above the lunar horizon. That image showed all of us how beautiful, how fragile, our Earth is. I have always wanted to go see what was "Out There", and that image has further strengthened that desire.
