Apollo 8 is having a moment. Fifty years after NASA launched the most audacious gamble in its history, this overshadowed milestone of human exploration is the subject of books by Jeffrey Kluger and Robert Kurson and an award-winning short documentary by filmmaker and musician Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee. Its timing could not be more perfect.
"The Most Profound Broadcast in Human History Came from Space" is from the October 12, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by David Von Drehle and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
