Had this as a wallpaper mural on one wall of my childhood bedroom and wallpaper of different Star Trek spaceships on the other walls. Thanks to my mom for indulging me on a limited budget as a single parent. And thanks to everyone in the space program, Trek, and other sci-fi ands sci-real dreamers over the years for keeping us inspired to strive toward solidarity on our pale blue dot.

One of the filter's more astute edits, I think.

I agree.  It works just as well as what I originally typed.

When I was a kid you could send a letter to NASA asking for pics, and they would send you back piles of 8x10 photos, all for free.  I did that once a week for years.  Wish I still had all those pics.

you could also get some that some joker at NASA autographed.  Probably just some mail room guy but as a 10 year old I just knew it was someone famous.

Dang.

My dad was a newspaperman. In the late 60s/early 70s he would bring me the NASA press packages, with 8x10 glossy mission images. Yep, they were thrown out at some time. Dammit.

This photo is free as an 4x6 if you have a minimum order amount, but I don't know what that amount is.
