Earthrise: Celebrating the Photograph that Changed (How We View) the World

Tuesday, April 23, 2019, 11:00 PM

On Christmas Eve, 1968, the NASA crew on Apollo 8 took the Earthrise photograph, the first photo of the earth from the perspective of the moon. It was immediately influential, and the first Earth Day followed soon after, in the spring of 1970.
Please join Bruce Clarke, Baruch S. Blumberg NASA/Library of Congress Chair in Astrobiology, who will moderate a discussion on the rich cultural impact of the photo on the US space program and the environmental movement.
RSVP for tickets here

A display and reception will follow the discussion.
