The Mystic Experience of Space
 / 

This new movie about the Apollo program sounds terrific:

The astronauts also talk about seeing “the whole circle of the Earth” at once, as Mr. Duke puts it. “That jewel of Earth was just hung, up in the blackness of space,” he says, holding his hands out, cupped, as if to cradle the sphere.

Whenever astronauts speak about the experience of seeing earth from space, it makes you wish everybody could see it that way. Er, I mean, I guess they sorta can. But I imagine it loses quite a bit in the translation.

Actually, wait — I like this one better — it looks like the picture you’d snap out the window of a Virgin Galactic flight to the moon!
