The earth in 1966

You may have heard about the lost, recovered and restored photos of Earth taken from a lunar orbiter in 1966. It's quite an amazing story, about a NASA employee who warehoused old data processing machinery the space agency was going to dispose of. She later got her hands on the data files from 1966 and with private money refurbished the equipment and the data in an abandoned McDonalds. You can read more about the project and view the results at Moon Views.
