The prayer league was created in 1968 by priests working with NASA to “pray for the safety of the mission and the astronauts.” It was designed to perpetuate the memory of astronaut Edward White, who wanted to send the Bible to the moon, but did not succeed in it. He died during the unsuccessful launch in 1967. The Bible is really miniature: it is recorded on a microfilm of 4 cm². It is worth noting that there are 100 copies of this publication that visited the Moon.
