Launch of Apollo 8 - first trip ever to the moon! It took some serious cajones to be the first humans to leave Earth orbit...

And seven months later it took even bigger cajones for humans leave the "safety" of their spacecraft.

Humans rock!

Very cool!

I was not born with guts like that. Some are, some aren't.

Courage is an amazing thing.

Even though I appreciate what they did, I might disagree with you. Being the first humans to venture away from Earth took a HUGE leap of faith. Of course, landing on another world was epic and unprecedented, but just rocketing away from Earth not knowing if you would ever make it back had to be incredibly brave!
