    1947 First photo of planet Earth from space

    Taken from the skies of New Mexico, California, the camera that would capture the first images of our planet from space was installed by the Americans on a V-2 rocket, a ballistic missile requisitioned from the Germans during World War II. The series was obtained in 1947 from more than 100 kilometers of altitude, thus inaugurating the era of space photography.
    On its return to the surface, rocket and camera were shattered, nevertheless the protected reel in a sheath of steel was saved. In the image you can see the complete sequence of photographs published in 1984 by NASA. The first one would correspond to the one in the lower right corner.Photo: NASA

    The Boeing X-37, also known as the Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV), is a reusable unmanned spacecraft. It is boosted into space by a launch vehicle, then re-enters Earth's atmosphere and lands as a spaceplane. The X-37 is operated by the United States Air Force for orbital spaceflight missions intended to demonstrate reusable space technologies.It is a 120%-scaled derivative of the earlier Boeing X-40.

    Just returned from the 4th mission... 718 days in space!

    The f X-37 mission, USA-261, launched on 20 May 2015 and landed On 7 May 2017 at Kennedy Space Center.
