October 11, 1968 marks the date of the first successful mission of the United States’ Apollo program to carry a crew into space. Not only was the launch a technical success from the Florida Cape Kennedy Air Force Station, but the crew was able to transmit the first live television broadcast from space. Great Plains Communications would like to highlight our cable channel, History Channel, and their “This Day in History” for additional events that happened on October 11.
