Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

 
The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit.

 
The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.
 

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs." --San Antonio Express-News

    I have set up recurring donations to a number of websites through the Brave browser BAT system. It is a small monthly sum but it is contingent on how much I get paid for allowing Brave to show me ads. If enough people do it, it adds up. So far, billwhittle.com is the only site that I set up donations to that participates in the program.

    I don’t know how the systems works for content creators but I do like a system that gives me money for my attention, even if that is also a small sum. I just bring this up in case people are unaware.

    I’ll have to look into this! Billwhittle. What a refreshing host, George found, to here just B4 the country birthday. Thank you! Robert you sounded good over the radio waves. Like my father’s teachers R.I.P. dad. I’m happier hearing about the privatization of space. Happy 4th of July!

    I heard you complaining about Roscosmos on the Batchelor Show again.
    I’ve read a bit about Russian history. It’s one disaster after another, then it gets worse. They never were so well off as during the last 20 years of Putin reign. Peace. Food. Not being whipped. Everything is perfect! No surprise he is so popular. He has centralized Roscosmos because someone’s got to do it right and he takes on the responsibility. Like Napoleon, it only gets right when he does it himself.

    Here’s an amusing account of when Russia in 1904-5 sent their Baltic fleet to Japan, a space flight scale kind of project of the time:

    Admiral Rogozin to Putin:
    “- Let’s try that ocean thing again!
    – Njet, it’s China’s turn now.”

    Admiral Rozjestvenskij shouting at the next ship:
    “- You on the czar’s rusty brothel bathtub, do something about the coal shortage and throw yourself into the oven!
    (Hands over the megaphone to the Madagaskian talking parrot on his shoulder)
    – Or I will crucify you on the anchor and fish for a shark!
    – Hey, hear that! Finally one sailor here who understands something!
    – You’re Jap’s food sushi. Polly wants more vodka.”

    G-d Bless America and the engineers and pilots who accomplished that historic achievement.

    Highly recommended to support …… A subscription pays off double in a way because on top of Mr. Zimmerman’s essays and reports, there are the comments by astute and articulate readers. Kindred spirits. I look forward to reading the comments as much as the articles that inspire them.

    Keep up the great work. You are a voice of sanity in a crazy world. I just subscribed as my way of helping to keep your voice out there where it can be heard.

    Ad Astra,

    Warren

  • Warren: Thank you! The support is truly appreciated.
