Former Nasa astronaut Frank Borman, who led the first ever space mission around the moon on Apollo 8, has died.
He passed away in Billings, Montana, aged 95, the agency said.
Mr Borman and two fellow astronauts were the first humans to ever see the far side of the Moon on the Apollo 8 expedition in 1968.
Nasa Administrator Bill Nelson remembered Mr Borman as “one of Nasa’s best”, and “a true American hero” truly dedicated to his work. END.
