Image courtesy of NASA / Wikipedia: "Earthrise" is a photograph of Earth and a portion of the Moon's surface that was taken by astronaut William Anders on 24 December 1968 during the Apollo 8 mission, the first manned flight to orbit the Moon powered by the massive Saturn V rocket. The image, which was later declared "the most influential environmental photograph ever taken", gave humankind a new perspective of their home planet. Command Module Pilot Jim Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders, held a live Christmas broadcast from lunar orbit, in which they showed pictures of the Earth and moon as seen from their spacecraft. Lovell said, "The vast loneliness is awe-inspiring and it makes you realize just what you have back there on Earth." They ended the broadcast with the crew taking turns reading from the Book of Genesis. The first Moon mission has been equated to the voyage of the First Fleet - both embarked into worlds unknown; both were dangerous missions; and both added vastly to the knowledge of science and engineering, each in their own time.
