I love the picture Earthrise. Since I first discovered it back to 2007, it has become the central part of my communications; It is featured on my Twitter account, my About.me page, my business cards and on the header of this website.
So when Andrew Revkin from the New York Times tweeted about the “ Nice video assembly of Apollo 8 astronaut audio & photos leading to iconic “EARTHRISE” image “ I just had to click.
To say the least, I wasn’t disappointed as this making of clearly explains how such a beautiful image was created by the Apollo 8 crew.
