Earth from Space
December 5, 2013
I saw this picture in a popular magazine when I was 14, courtesy of the Apollo 8 mission. These were the first photographs of Earth ever, and they were stunning. I've been enthralled by a great many pictures of space since then, but the effect of this one, looking down as it were on the home planet, has stayed with me.
Fifteen years ago, Society members and passionate space advocates like you helped save the Pluto mission. Now we can do the same for missions to Europa and Mars.
