So The Wife and I rode out the huge storm tonight on the moon, courtesy of @PBS. Our trip culminated in the extraordinary short film #Earthrise by @evaughnlee on #POVshorts. It's the story of astronauts Bill Anders, Frank Norman & Jim Lovell & the 1st photos of Earth from space.
Anders, Norman and Lovell speak so philosophically and emotionally about their hope for a unification of the planet and a retreat from nationalism (their exact words) when people see how we are all one on the same beautiful Earth. 🌍🌒💫🚀
It was a provocative and deeply moving film. Just a half hour, but such a powerful series of images and thoughts from these men who were the first to see the Earth from space. Would that their words had resonated for everyone. But watch it if you can via your local @PBS station.

#Apollo8 was historic for 1st time humans left Earth and orbited the Moon. Apollo was intended as Cold War competition with Soviets. Starting with #Earthrise photo and many other observations, we found we had much to learn about Earth there. #astronomy #space #history
