Quirky quote of the day
“Moderation is a virtue only in those who are thought to have an alternative.” — Henry A. Kissinger
Today in history
On this day in 1968, Apollo 7, the first manned Apollo mission, is launched with astronauts Walter M. Schirra, Jr.; Donn F. Eisele; and Walter Cunningham aboard.
Under the command of Schirra, the crew of Apollo 7 conducted an 11-day orbit of Earth, during which the crew transmitted the first live television broadcasts from orbit.
Here’s the rest of the story:
Today — Mostly sunny, with a high near 78. West wind between 10 and 20 mph.
Tonight — A 10 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly cloudy, with a low around 46. North wind between 10 and 15 mph.
