The first photo taken of Earth taken by humans from space

This is "Earthrise", a photo that changed our perception of the world…#TBT

In 1968…

Here is the first photo of Earth taken by humans from space. It was taken on December 24, 1968, by three American astronauts and is considered a key moment in global ecological awareness.

This photo was taken during the Apollo 8 mission but fell into obscurity because of the Apollo 11 mission led by Neil Armstrong, which took place six months later. However, Frank Borman, James Lovell and William Anders, were the first men to leave the Earth’s orbit, to discover the dark side of the Moon and, above all, to witness an Earth rise.

In 2003, the photo “Earthrise” was named by Life magazine one of the “100 Photographs that Changed the World.”

    Why we should all follow our own drummer. I remember seeing this photo in the news media in real time in 1968 when the astronauts sent it back to earth. Thought it was so awesome. Wanted to see it again. It was gone, and never saw 'Earthrise' again for a very long time, and I had expressed my regret to others..'It was a beautiful picture, and why is it not published anywhere? Why?' Thought that was very strange. (No, we didn't have Google then!) Now it's one of the 100 most photographs that changed the world. Amazing.

    ❤️❤️READ ME…This is the story of my life How i got my Husband back After 9 years of marriage, me and my husband has been living happily together. I don't really know what happened but he moved to California to be with another woman. I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, I was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across someone testifying how PROPHET dav, helped get her ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a Love spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day, our Marriage was now stronger than before, All thanks to PROPHET dav. he is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the internet that prophet dav is real and powerful spell caster who i will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need your Ex back or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact him via Text, or Whats-App number +2348109070938for quick response. or email [email protected]
