earth rise

Why is this considered – most amazing picture ever taken.
The man that took this image was Bill Anders. He was on board the space craft, ‘Apollo 8’ –  back in 1968. Bill took what is considered, possibly the most important photograph of all time…..  ‘Earth Rise!’ When they returned home from the voyage – the crew was asked about the mission. Anders famously replied “We went to the moon – but we actually discovered earth!” This is an amazing TED talk on images of Earth taken from space (satellites) & the impact (good & bad) that humans are having on Earth! I personally loved the talk & that’s why I wanted to share it with you.
