On 21 December 1968 the Apollo 8 astronauts captured the first pictures of Earth from space. The images of ‘Earthrise’ and ‘the Blue Marble’ proved Fred Hoyle’s 1948 prediction that ‘once a photograph of the Earth, taken from the outside, is available ... a new idea as powerful as any in history will be let loose’. After tracing the history of the human effort to fly and go into space, Christopher Potter reflects on the impact of seeing our planet from afar.
