President Nixon telephoned the Apollo 11 astronauts but I believe Pope Paulus VI (Papacy 1963-1978) did so as well.

There are even photographs of Pope Paules VI observing the Moon at the Specola Vaticana (Vatican Observatory in Castel Gandolfo) during the Apollo 11 mission.

Were there such phone calls on every Apollo mission (by the Vice-President)?

All times are CT (US)
