50 years of NASA's 1st flight to moon and capturing of 'Earthrise'

Its been 50 years, since the first NASA flight was launched to the moon. Apollo 8 took 3 astronauts for the ride of the moon on this date in 1968. They were reading from the Book of Genesis on live TV as they circled the moon. And there they saw a blue and white colored ball rising above the grey landscape. To capture the sight the photographer grabbed his camera and saved it forever and named it 'Earthrise'.
