Happy 45th Anniversary Earthrise


I make no bones about it – I am a GEEK and a NERD.  Part of that stems from the interest in science that my father instilled in me….and what kid didn’t want to grow up to be an astronaut when they were younger…especially with the Six Million Dollar Man on TV.

Tomorrow is the 45th Anniversary of one of greatest photographs of all time – Earthrise

But do you know how this whole even transpired?  I know I didn’t, and I doubt many others would either if it were not for NASA and the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

To mark the date – NASA has put together a great video, well worth the watch.
