  • Description

    Apollo 10 climaxed its record television programming on Monday (26 May) by showing the earth in color from about 41,000 miles away. At the beginning of the telecast astronaut Eugene Cornan said, "we can see part of China. India is the most predominant feature. I'll try to give you a little zoom here on Saudi Arabia and India, into the Gulf of Oman."
    The camera was then turned inside the space cabin, where the three astronauts spoke strongly about sharing the views of space with other Americans. Commander Stafford summed it up, "We felt very strongly about sharing with you some of the adventure, the excitement, the challenges and the rewards of these eight days. Through this endeavor we hope that we've made you and millions of people of the world more a part of the history that is being made in our day and age. How much we're going to progress in the future is up to your imagination, but if we harness our energies and if our perspective is right, the goals are unlimited."
    Apollo 10's final telecast lasted 12 minutes. The astronauts' longest television transmission daring the flight ??? 68 minutes.
