21st December 1968

Fifty years ago.

Launch of Apollo 8, the first space flight to bring humans outside terrestrial gravity.

A historic flight that paved the way to the Moon for Apollo 11, seven months later.

All three astronauts, Borman, Lovell and Anders, are still alive today.

And nobody has ever gone back. For me that burns.

Remember well that sad day. In the 70's we had a Labrador whose ancestors came from Lockerbie. When my parents were driving through Northern England in the late 70s they made a detour to visit Lockerbie.

When we heard of the tragedy there we somehow felt a personal connection.
Yes, I was just a kid, but of course the whole of our region was shaken to the core, and it's still very much part of local memory.
