"It's a classic."
-Edgar Mitchell, Lunar Module Pilot, Apollo 14
The story is as unique as it is unknown. The technological challenges and triumphs of the Apollo missions were the focus of unparalleled media frenzy in the 1960s and '70s as Americans rushed headlong to the moon.
Yet behind the forgotten bylines are the stories of those in NASA who undertook a challenge of a different sort. These explorers were not only men of science, many were men of faith.
Expressing their faith in space, however, created a dilemma for many of the astronauts and their government agency. The result was an extraordinary drama that unfolded behind the scenes.
From the vast ranks of NASA personnel emerged a chaplain and scientist with a vision for the Apollo Prayer League and a quest to land a Bible on the moon. And along with this came the stories of others-astronauts, families, friends, and dedicated NASA employees-who undertook a personal journey that paralleled the larger one.
Their stories are as remarkable as the men and women who lived them.
"The technological side of things changes quickly.
The side shown here is the side that endures."
-Eugene Cernan, Commander, Apollo 17
