Remember This Image?
BoingBoing's David Pescovitz reminds me that it was forty years ago today that this photograph was taken by Apollo 17's crew, on the last manned mission to the moon,
Five hours and six minutes travel time from Cape Canaveral, 28,000 miles from home. The camera was a seventy millimetre Hasselblad, with an 80 mm lens.
