Captured by the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) situated on NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR), this is the first image of the entire sunlit side of Earth since Apollo 17’s iconic Blue Marble photograph in 1972.
DSCOVR started its journey on February 11, 2015. After traveling about 1 million miles to the L1 Lagrange Point (four times farther than the orbit of the Moon), EPIC sends us this perfect image of Earth with views of North, Central, and South America.
After traveling over 9 years and 3+ billion, yes billion, miles NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft finally reached Pluto, capturing the first ever photos of the dwarf planet’s surface.

Urban photographer and explorer Ralph Mirebs was traveling around Kazakhstan when he happened upon what looked like a massive airport hangar. Turns out, the hangar was an abandoned relic of the Soviet Union’s Buran Space Shuttle Program, housing two incredibly intact Space Shuttles that never made it to launch. One was built as a mock-up used to test fit everything that would be used for the fully functioning shuttles; the other was virtually untouched post-development, ready for a mission that never took place. The facility closed down shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union, but the shuttles left behind remain very real representations of one of the most technologically-advanced times of modern history.
