Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
We mourn the passing of Apollo Astronaut William "Bill" Anders at the age of 90.

He was backup pilot for the Gemini XI, Apollo 11 flights, and was lunar module pilot for Apollo 8 — the first lunar orbit mission. On Christmas Eve in 1968, Anders turned his camera toward Earth and captured the legendary Earthrise photo.
