The first television broadcast from a manned, orbiting American spacecraft came from the crew of Apollo 7 in October of 1968. The world was watching as mission commander Walter Schirra held up a sign reading “Keep Those Cards and Letters Coming in Folks”, as his shipmates floated around in space. The crew even won an Emmy in 1969 for their efforts. Learn why the first broadcast didn’t go exactly as planned in this Friday’s Launch Pad Lecture beginning at 9:00 am on the museum’s first floor.
