This is ‘The Blue Marble’. It was taken by the Apollo 17 crew on December 7, 1972. It is now one of the most widely distributed photographs in existence, showcasing our planet fully illuminated.
The 1970s saw a resurgence of environmental activism - this snapshot was cherished by environmentalists as it showcased the frailty and vulnerability of Earth in the vast expanse of space.
Love the universe. Love the Earth. Love one another. xx
