Air and Space Magazine have posted a wonderful feature on the 50 most memorable images from NASA’s history. I never tire of taking in vistas of other worlds, the technological leaps made during the second half of the 20th century, and images of the courageous men and women who put it all on the line by venturing into space. Below is probably my favourite image, mainly because it was the first that really blew me away as a kid – like, “holy crap, that’s a picture of the surface of another planet” (I was *just* too young to enjoy the Apollo successes).
And if that wasn’t enough for you, make sure you head over to Boston.com’s most excellent regular feature “The Big Picture”, and take a look at “Enceladus Up Close” and “The Sun“. Awe-some.
