A level 3 Oxford Bookworms Library graded reader. Written for Learners of English by Tim Vicary.

Is there anyone who has not looked at the dark sky, and the shining points of light above us, and asked themselves questions about what is out there? Where did our planet come from? When did the universe begin? Could we live on another planet? And one question above all – is there life anywhere else in space? Begin a journey into space – where spacecraft travel at thousands of kilometres an hour, temperatures are millions of degrees, and a planet may be hard rock – or a ball of gas. In space, everything is extraordinary . . .

The three men were alone. Nobody could see them, nobody could talk to them. No one had ever been here before.

It was 24 December 1968. American astronauts Frank Borman, James Lovell and William Anders were behind the Moon in a spacecraft called Apollo 8.

The sky above them was black and full of stars, millions and millions of stars – too many to count. But the men were not watching the stars. They were watching the Moon as it moved below them.

Everything that they saw on the Moon was grey and dusty and dead. There were no rivers or seas, no lights or colours – no life at all. Just hills and rocks, dust and stones. But they were studying these hills and rocks carefully, because no one had ever seen them before. Then they saw something new.

As they watched, the Earth came out from behind the Moon like the Sun rising in the morning. But it was more beautiful than the Sun. They saw the blue of the seas and the white of the clouds. As they watched, the Earth rose into the black sky in front of them.

No one had ever seen the Earth like this before. Frank Borman took a photo, but it was in black and white. William Anders quickly put a colour film into the camera and took a colour photograph.

This photo, ‘Earthrise’, is one of the most famous photos ever made. It shows the Earth as a beautiful blue and white ball against the blackness of space. It is not a big ball; it is really quite small. To the three men in Apollo 8, the Earth looked no bigger than a man’s hand.

But it is our home. The Earth is the planet that we all live on. We cannot live in any other place

I tre uomini erano soli. Nessuno poteva vederli, nessuno poteva parlare con loro. Nessuno era mai stato qui prima.

Era il 24 dicembre 1968. Gli astronauti americani Frank Borman, James Lovell e William Anders erano dietro la Luna in una navicella spaziale chiamata Apollo 8.

Il cielo sopra di loro era nero e pieno di stelle, milioni e milioni di stelle - troppe per essere contate. Ma gli uomini non guardavano le stelle. Guardavano la Luna mentre si muoveva sotto di loro.

Tutto ciò che hanno visto sulla Luna era grigio, polveroso e morto. Non c'erano fiumi o mari, non c'erano luci o colori, non c'era vita. Solo colline e rocce, polvere e pietre. Ma studiavano attentamente queste colline e rocce, perché nessuno le aveva mai viste prima. Poi videro qualcosa di nuovo.

Mentre guardavano, la Terra usciva da dietro la Luna come il Sole che sorgeva al mattino. Ma era più bella del Sole. Videro il blu dei mari e il bianco delle nuvole. Mentre guardavano, la Terra si alzava nel cielo nero davanti a loro.

Nessuno aveva mai visto la Terra in questo modo prima d'ora. Frank Borman ha scattato una foto, ma era in bianco e nero. William Anders ha messo rapidamente una pellicola a colori nella macchina fotografica e ha scattato una foto a colori.

Questa foto, 'Earthrise', è una delle più famose mai realizzate. Mostra la Terra come una bella palla bianca e blu contro il nero dello spazio. Non è una grande palla, è davvero molto piccola. Ai tre uomini dell'Apollo 8, la Terra non sembrava più grande della mano di un uomo.

Ma è la nostra casa. La Terra è il pianeta su cui tutti noi viviamo. Non possiamo vivere in nessun altro luogo

Los tres hombres estaban solos. Nadie podía verlos, nadie podía hablar con ellos. Nadie había estado aquí antes.

Era el 24 de diciembre de 1968. Los astronautas americanos Frank Borman, James Lovell y William Anders estaban detrás de la Luna en una nave espacial llamada Apolo 8.

El cielo sobre ellos estaba negro y lleno de estrellas, millones y millones de estrellas - demasiadas para contarlas. Pero los hombres no estaban mirando las estrellas. Estaban observando la Luna mientras se movía por debajo de ellos.

Todo lo que veían en la Luna era gris, polvoriento y muerto. No había ríos ni mares, ni luces ni colores, ni vida en absoluto. Sólo colinas y rocas, polvo y piedras. Pero estaban estudiando cuidadosamente estas colinas y rocas, porque nadie las había visto antes. Entonces vieron algo nuevo.

Mientras miraban, la Tierra salió de detrás de la Luna como el Sol saliendo por la mañana. Pero era más hermoso que el Sol. Vieron el azul de los mares y el blanco de las nubes. Mientras miraban, la Tierra se elevó hacia el cielo negro frente a ellos.

Nadie había visto la Tierra así antes. Frank Borman tomó una foto, pero fue en blanco y negro. William Anders rápidamente puso una película en color en la cámara y tomó una fotografía en color.
