During the first ever manned trip to another space object, while orbiting the Moon for the very first time by human beings, on Christmas Eve 1968 the crew of Apollo 8: astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders have appropriately decided to send a message to Earth by reciting first 10 verses from Book of Genesis (English King James Bible version).
Fourty five years later at the time of writing, this message is still the most distant message ever sent and received by human beings.
Hats off to those 3 brave space pioneers, who went where no one else have ever gone before - and still hasn't!
Sadly, their trek won't be superseded by any farther manned flight in any foreseeable future, and if such trip should ever proceed, most likely it won't happen during our lifetime... since even a short video with mere portion of a sound from such flight - half a century later - is being at least tried to be squeezed for profits by multiple international corporations (some ain't even American!), obviously it only can and will get worse in the world run by global corporations instead of by the people, because no profits = no more space exploration; corporations running US governments (and most of the world today) obviously don't give a damn about science. If something/anything doesn't bring immediate profit, it won't get any funding anymore...

Sound from NASA tape copy has been enhanced for better clarity; tape noise has been removed, but original transmission's noise has been left intact intentionally.
Visuals have been created from the famous "Earth Rise" photograph taken right before the reading by Astronaut Bill Anders aboard Apollo 8.

(I had to add above copyright note to prevent any further scammers, see update below)
I want everyone to know names of the companies and corporations that tried to steal ownership to this video.
Below is list of fraudelent copyright claims from greedy a-holes (current and/or those that have been fought-off). Some of them (i.e. Warner Music = WMG) have tried multiple claims at different dates!
(0:00 means they claimed entire video; other times listed means they claimed only portion from the time stated)
"Pastor Matthew Tietje"
created almost exact copy of my video, didn't even say "thanks for inspiration" or anything of this kind (thanks to Miss Teed for reporting in the comments below). I guess in this pastor's set of Commandements the "Thou shalt not steal" doesn't exist...

Fair warning to Warner Music Group: sure, anyone can make "copyright mistake" once, even twice, but thrice or more is certainly a case of deliberate personal harassment. Since your very first claim to this video in 2013 you already know that this is not your video, nor it contains any portion(s) of any soundtracks owned by you. Therefore, if you will place yet another phony claim to this video or it's soundtrack again, I will no longer consider it as a case of mistakenly claimed copyrights, but as direct personal harassment no less.

There were more, but at first I didn't knew there are so many scammer companies preying on youtube under false "copyright" claims and I haven't kept earlier fake claimants exact informations.
