History-Making Astronaut Dead at 95

via NASA on Youtube

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

Borman, along with crew members James Lovell and William Anders, was the first to orbit the moon and witness Earth from space.

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

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

Their Christmas Eve broadcast from the moon and the iconic “Earthrise” photo are among their notable achievements.

Borman’s leadership at Eastern Airlines and his perspective on space travel further define his legacy.
