Earth Day

Posted April 22nd, 2007 by Devin and filed in Uncategorized


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.”
