The Blue Marble

Be the 1st to vote.

There’s only one complete picture of earth from space.

This alone should make people question NASA and all their space stories.

The Blue Marble is a famous photograph of the Earth, taken on December 7, 1972, by the crew of the Apollo 17 spacecraft, at a distance of about 45,000 kilometers (28,000 miles). It is one of the most iconic, and among the most widely distributed images in human history.[1][2]

The photograph was taken about 5 hours and 6 minutes after launch of the Apollo 17 mission,[3] and about 1 hour 54 minutes after the spacecraft left its parking orbit around the Earth, to begin its trajectory to the Moon. The time of Apollo 17‘s launch, 12:33 a.m. EST, meant that Africa was in daylight during the early hours of the spacecraft’s flight. With the December solstice approaching, Antarctica was also illuminated.

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft is at Pluto.

After a decade-long journey through our solar system, New Horizons made its closest approach to Pluto Tuesday, about 7,750 miles above the surface — roughly the same distance from New York to Mumbai, India – making it the first-ever space mission to explore a world so far from Earth.

Who? Ab, Psyopticon


The return of psyOpticon .. doesn’t everyone deserve a second chance? I try shed light on last year’s controversy.

Psy states that he removed all references on LRF to his “Tavistock Tim” vitriol. Let’s hope he can contribute positively here and in the audiochats.
