Man at the Moon (p.10, 11)
It was mankind’s farthest in the history of explo-ration. Almost a quater-million miles from the planet earth, Astronauts Frank Borman, James Lovell and Wil-liam Andens took this photograph of the cratered surface of the moon and the glowing half-orb of earth hanging in the void of space 240,000 miles away, as they came over the horizon in their first orbit of the moon.The sun-set terminator, separating day and the shadow, surface is about 100 miles across and 480 miles to the horizon.
