Apollo 8 training Oct 68

Pictured in a boilerplate mockup of their command module during training in October 1968, the crew of Apollo 8 represented one of the most experienced ever to travel into orbit. Commander Frank Borman (foreground) had previously spent 14 days in orbit on Gemini VII with Senior Pilot Jim Lovell (middle), who also commanded Gemini XII. In the background, Bill Anders was the only 'rookie' member of the team. Photo Credit: NASA
