  • Had this as a wallpaper mural on one wall of my childhood bedroom and wallpaper of different Star Trek spaceships on the other walls. Thanks to my mom for indulging me on a limited budget as a single parent. And thanks to everyone in the space program, Trek, and other sci-fi ands sci-real dreamers over the years for keeping us inspired to strive toward solidarity on our pale blue dot.
  • The most profound image ever captured by humans.  Thanks Bill !

  • When I was a kid you could send a letter to NASA asking for pics, and they would send you back piles of 8x10 photos, all for free.  I did that once a week for years.  Wish I still had all those pics.

    you could also get some that some joker at NASA autographed.  Probably just some mail room guy but as a 10 year old I just knew it was someone famous.

    Dang.

    My dad was a newspaperman. In the late 60s/early 70s he would bring me the NASA press packages, with 8x10 glossy mission images. Yep, they were thrown out at some time. Dammit.
  • This photo is free as an 4x6 if you have a minimum order amount, but I don't know what that amount is.
