“We took one of our best field trips to Iceland. If you want to go to a place on earth that looks like the Moon, central Iceland should be high on your list, as it beautifully displays volcanic geology with virtually no vegetation cover.” -Dr. Elbert A. King, MSC/Apollo geologist

Astronauts Charlie Bassett, Roger Chaffee, and Bill Anders during a geological field trip to Iceland, July 1965

Bringing in the week with Frank learning that the USS Yorktown is out of pancakes.

Chicago is so cold in January that not only are the three moon pioneers snuggling under a blanket together, Jim’s glove appears to have frozen onto his face.

This might be my favorite photo of Jim Lovell.

(21-27 Dec. 1968) — This photograph is a view looking south toward the lunar horizon. The bright-rayed crater in the foreground is located at approximately 30 degrees south latitude and 110 degrees east longitude on the farside of the moon. This is another example of a bright rayed crater which the astronauts photographed during the Apollo 8 lunar orbit mission. This type of feature readily stands out in the Apollo 8 photographs because it was photographed at a high sun angle.
