Apollo 11 launch date is close (16). I made a little art mixing my backyard shot with NASA original.

This is the only unedited photo in the known universe to include every single human being in the frame, except for Michael Collins, who took the picture.

Jethro Tull adeptly sang about the frustrations of Michael Collins on this mission... https://www.youtube.... jeffrey and me

 

So close, and yet...

Well you can't see into the Command Module either, nor the people standing on Earth...but they're IN the frame. tounge.gif

 

If Michael only had his finger in the picture...we'd have them all!

Future missions will oc have a robotic selfie-stick outside the spacecraft.
