This image was the first ever photo of what is now iconic when we think of the moon missions - Earthrise. NASA released this image from the Lunar Orbiter 1 mission in 1966 and at the time it was of a fairly low resolution. Using some very clever technology they have regenerated the photo from the original data stored on old magnetic tapes. Click on the image to view it in it's full resolution.
