A North American Rockwell artist's concept of the Spacecraft/Lunar Module Adaptor (SLA) panels and the S-IVB third stage being jettisoned, soon after Trans-Lunar Injection. Apollo 8 was now on its own in a mysterious region, betwixt Earth and the Moon, known as 'cislunar space'...and Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders were travelling faster than any humans ever before.
