Are we alone in the universe? What are your thoughts?
Have intelligent extraterrestrial beings visited humans on Earth? Are there planets teeming with animals, yet no sophisticated cultures? Do you limit the existence of life off-Earth to bacteria and/or simple organism? Or is the universe our own vast playground? We’d love to know what you think! :)
On Christmas Eve 1968, the astronauts of the Apollo 8 mission read from the first part of Genesis during a live television broadcast from lunar orbit. A Japanese correspondent staying at a Houston hotel while covering the mission called NASA Public Affairs to request a copy of the speech that the astronauts were reading. The Public Affairs official asked where he was staying and then told him that if he opened the desk drawer in his room he would find a book and that he should open it to page one. The reporter found the Gideon Bible and later reported that “NASA Public Affairs is very efficient - they had a mission transcript waiting in my hotel room.”
