This photo of "earthrise" was taken by astronaut William Anders in 1968 during the Apollo 8 mission. It has been called "the most influential environmental photograph ever taken." Edgar Mitchell who is quoted here, piloted the lunar module on the Apollo 14 mission, 1971. He later took up the cause of Roswell UFO enthusiasts, and founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences with Deepak Chopra, Marilyn Schlitz, Dean Radin, and Cassandra Vieten. The US-NASA space program came to an end in 2011.
