Our place in space

Our place in space

I'm old enough to remember the Apollo missions. The picture of earth taken from Apollo 8 when I was 13 years old, put a lot things in perspective. I realized that we live on one planet, and there is no borders to be seen from space. The Apollo program, and especially this picture, aroused my interest for space and space exploration.
