Forty five years ago today, the astronauts of Apollo 8, Frank Borman II,
James Lovell Jr, and William Anders, became the first manned spacecraft
to leave Earth’s orbit, orbit the Moon, and return home safely.

Today is the 45th anniversary of Earthrise. We take it for granted now but, along with Blue Marble, it's
the most important and famous photo ever taken. In a world saturated
with fakery and cynicism, it's easy to ignore the magnitude of its
impact. But in 1968, this photo changed everything.
