The Bible on the Moon

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”

–Genesis 1:1

In February 1971, astronaut Edgar Mitchell traveled to the moon aboard Apollo 14, carrying with him a reminder of the Creator:  a tiny Bible.  Just buy cialis 1 1/2 inches on each side, the “space Bible” was contained in its entirety on a tiny sheet of microfilm.

Mitchell’s bible will go on the auction block on September 15, in an on-line auction by RR Auction of Amherst, New Jersey.  The opening bid is just $5,000.

Edgar Mitchell isn’t the only astronaut who has carried his faith with him into the heavens.  Fervent astronauts have recited prayers, even received the Eucharist while in space.  I wrote about some of their stories here and here.
