Astronaut Frank Borman, known for commanding Apollo 8’s historic 1968 flight around the moon, has passed away at 95.

He and his crew were the first to see Earth from space.

Borman, Lovell, and Anders circled the moon 10 times and read from the Book of Genesis during a live telecast on Christmas Eve. (Trending: Supreme Court Dismisses Case To Keep Trump Off Ballot)

“Today we remember one of NASA’s best. Astronaut Frank Borman was a true American hero,” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson stated. “His lifelong love for aviation and exploration was only surpassed by his love for his wife Susan.”

“We were the first humans to see the world in its majestic totality, an intensely emotional experience for each of us,” Borman wrote once.

“We said nothing to each other, but I was sure our thoughts were identical — of our families on that spinning globe.”

“And maybe we shared another thought I had: ‘This must be what God sees.’”

Borman’s experiences on Gemini 7 and Apollo 8, as well as his reflections on the Earth from space, remain significant parts of his legacy.
