It took 4.54 Billion Years for someone to finally see this view and take a photo. The famous "Blue Marble" photo


It took 4.54 Billion Years for someone to finally see this view and take a photo..  "This famous "Blue Marble" shot represents the first photograph in which Earth is in full view. The picture was taken on December 7, 1972, as the Apollo 17 crew left Earth’s orbit for the moon. With the sun at their backs, the crew had a perfectly lit view of the blue planet."
