Quick Glance: William Anders: Apollo 8 Astronaut Who Captured 'Earthrise,' Dies at 90
  • On Christmas Eve in 1968, the three astronauts of Apollo 8 witnessed the 'Earthrise' - an iconic image showing the Earth from the moon. This photo, taken by Maj. Anders, became a powerful symbol of humanity's place in the vast cosmos.

  • The Apollo 8 mission, originally intended to test the lunar module, became the first manned mission to orbit the moon. It aimed to photograph the moon's surface and map out potential landing sites for future missions.

  • Maj. Anders, who passed away in a plane crash at 90, left a lasting legacy not only as an astronaut but also as a visionary who impacted humanity through his work.

  • Through his famous 'Earthrise' photo and his contributions to space exploration, Maj. Anders inspired generations and reminded us of our interconnectedness and shared existence on the 'pale blue dot' suspended in the universe.

  • A Chinese probe landed on the far side of the moon to collect soil and rock samples, aiming to study differences with the better-known near side.

  • The mission is part of a growing rivalry in space exploration with the U.S., Japan, and India.

  • China aims to send a person to the moon before 2030, potentially becoming the second nation to do so after the U.S.

  • The probe is set to gather up to 2 kilograms of material from the moon's surface and return it to Earth in a capsule.

Boeing Can’t Afford to Fail Tomorrow
Quick Glance: Crucial Test for Boeing
  • In Cape Canaveral, Florida, a spacecraft developed by Boeing is on the verge of launching to the International Space Station with a human crew on board. The astronauts have undergone intensive preparations in quarantine to get ready for the historic mission.

  • Boeing's longstanding efforts to fly astronauts for NASA have been marred by setbacks, leading to delays. These issues are the latest in a series of challenges Boeing has faced with crewed spaceflights.

  • Boeing must demonstrate that Starliner can perform, as the company has not successfully completed an unmanned test flight yet, and the problems have escalated in recent weeks.

  • NASA has once again deemed Boeing ready for a crewed Starliner flight and remains fairly calm about the latest issues. The upcoming mission will be crucial as Starliner needs to safely deliver astronauts to the space station, protect them during reentry, and land them safely in the New Mexico desert.
