the michael collins photograph from space

Another space picture to put things into perspective. Michael Collins took this from the command module, as the Eagle occupants (Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin) were returning from the moon, before heading back to Earth.
He was therefore looking out at everyone that has ever lived, or was living, apart from himself.
What an experience that must have been, although l would still have rather stepped on the moon itself.
