All crew members, Gene Cernan, Ronald Evans and Harrison Schmitt, took photographs during the mission with the onboard Hasselblad. With 120 colours to choose from, we're confident that you'll find the right paint for every room in the home from the Fired Earth collection.

The concept originiates from Mylands' vast knowlege of antique restoration, flooring finishes and decorative paints for interiors, film, television and theatre. But then Congress canceled the funding for Apollo 18, which also had a crew that trained together for months. NASA has verified that the 2012 "blue marble" images are composites, made from multiple images taken in low Earth orbit. Most people who glanced out the window and saw something like that would be distracted no matter how busy they were.

Before the Blue Marble a picture of the fully illuminated Earth by the ATS-3 satellite was used in 1968 by Stewart Brand for his Whole Earth Catalog, after campaigning since 1966 to have NASA release a then-rumored satellite image of the entire Earth as seen from space. The color balance has been adjusted to approximate an image that could be seen with the average human eye.

This meant launching toward a nearly full moon, which in turn meant departing from Florida at night. They were generally regarded as dorks by the pilot astronauts, Right Stuff bravos like Cernan and Engle who between them had flown a hundred different aircraft, from helicopters to rocket planes, landing on everything from heaving carriers to empty deserts. On occasion, the other side of the Moon will appear in the Earth images as the Moon crosses in front of the Earth. Limited to only 2,999 WORLDWIDE you will need to act quickly to secure this highly sought after release. The Apollo 17 crew were on their way to the moon when the photograph was captured at 29,000 kilometres (18,000 miles) from the Earth.

Building on the Hubble’s discoveries, the Webb is designed to visualise infrared wavelengths at a unprecedented level of clarity. In the NASA archive its formal designation is AS17-148-22727 but it's commonly known as The Blue Marble Shot, and forty years later we still aren't sure who actually took it. When political pressure bumped Engle in favor of Schmitt on Apollo 17 a very odd couple was sent to the moon.
