The Kid Should See This

The 45th Anniversary of Earthrise (2013) – NASA

Watch more with these video collections:

On December 24, 1968, the Apollo 8 crew orbited the moon and discovered Earth. Astronauts James Lovell, command module pilot, William Anders, lunar module pilot, and Frank Borman, commander, were the first people to leave our planet to orbit another rocky body in space, and in this NASA video, we can travel with them to witness the moment they captured this iconic photo of home: Earthrise.

The 45th anniversary video uses data from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft with audio recordings, data, and photographs from the orbiting lunar excursion module (LEM) to recreate this exhilarating and unanticipated moment of teamwork.

In the archives: more from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and oodles of amazing videos about Earth.
