On the air, twice!

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

Tonight is radio night here at Behind the Black. I will be on two different syndicated radio shows, one in the United Kingdom, The Moore Show, followed by two hours live beginning at 10 pm (Pacific) on Coast to Coast with George Noory.

Both interviews should be a lot of fun. I intend to talk a bit about today’s SpaceShipTwo flight and how that lays the groundwork for the future of space travel. The subject of climate will also be a topic on both shows.


My July fund-raiser for Behind the Black is now over. The support from my readers was unprecedented, making this July campaign the best ever, twice over. What a marvelous way to celebrate the website's tenth anniversary!

Thank you! The number of donations in July, and continuing now at the beginning of August, is too many for me to thank you all personally. Please forgive me by accepting my thank you here, in public, on the website.

If you did not donate or subscribe in July and still wish to, note that the tip jar remains available year round.

    Congraguations, it is good to see that you are on Coast to Coast!

    Great stuff your exposition on the Moore show. The appetite whetted with John Batchelor was satiated (temporarily) with the extended discourse with Kevin Moore. I need a ITunes Podcast feed to all your interviews. “Curiosity wins”.

    Great show with George, and i cannot believe a high school is teaching we didn’t go to the moon, but i seen video of people on the streets of NYC being brainwashed that we did not go and they already attacked our astronauts calling them liars I heard. i have a article from yrs. ago that said they also thanked God for making there and before they put the flag up they did Communion to God and THAT was hidden from the public from the start so it is NO surprise that they would teach that we didn’t go at all. These teachers must be fired. What did the whole country watch that day if we didn’t go?>ask the ones not even born yet that are starting this lie

    re: moon landing real?

    Just heard you on c2c, I think what they are saying is that we did go to the moon, but the video that was shown to the public was actually shot in a studio, as Kubrick was working on “2001- a space odyssey” then…. Possibly they were afraid to show the public live film feed in case something really horrible happened. This is Jay Weidner’s theory based on his study of Kubrick’s life and films.

  • The landing was real, the live television footage shown was real, the film footage released later was real. Nothing was shot in a studio.

    Every claim about anything being faked is a lie. Pure and simple.
