Righteous Stuff 1 of 2

Painting by Ludek PesekI recently had occasion to look through some old issues of OMNI (the magazine of science fiction and science fact), which ran from 1977 to 1995.  OMNI was a fantastic publication, mixing short fiction with cutting-edge science reporting and skeptical analysis of paranormal phenomena.  I came across a wonderful article from May 1984 by James Gorman called “Righteous Stuff,” which explores why so many of the Apollo astronauts had profound spiritual experiences – not so much during their missions, but as a result of them.

This article is a little long for a single day’s reading, so I’m dividing it into two consecutive portions.  Hopefully, these scans aren’t too much of a strain on the eye – I tried to balance readability with image size.  Enjoy!
