Apollo 8.

On Christmas Eve 1968, during the Apollo 8 mission, Astronauts Frank Borman, James A. Lovell, Jr, and William A. Anders, beamed home this holiday message as they orbited the moon (appoximately 240,000 miles above the earth). As profound and inspiring as the Christmas greeting was, the controllers in Houston found a way to lighten the mood by responding with a humorous poem. Hit play or go to YouTube.
