Episode Summary

EDIT
1968
AIRED:
1968 is proving eventful for the United States and the world, but not for any good reasons. Virtually each month sees something horrific happen – further violence in the Vietnam War; protests turning violent; the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy; and more. Concurrently, NASA is continuing their work as planned. However, word spreads of the Soviet Union preparing a new spacecraft for testing and launch for a lunar orbit – prompting a change of plans. A decision is made to have Apollo 8 and its crew – astronauts Jim Lovell, Bill Anders and Frank Borman – perform ten lunar orbits in late December. As work and the mission itself proceed, the United States and the world – such as the Borman family – wait in suspense.moreless
