Earth Day


This isn’t the best photo of the Earth from space you’ll find, but it means something to me. It’s from a packet that my grandfather gave me when I was a teenager. I believe it is a NASA press release from immediately following the Apollo 11 moon mission of 1969.

So, a shot of Earth on Earth Day. And to quote Wally Schirra, who flew many missions for NASA, including an earlier Apollo 7:

“I left Earth three times. I found no place else to go. Please take care of Spaceship Earth.”
