76 years ago on October 24, the first picture of Earth was taken from space.

This black and white image was captured by a 35 mm camera lens carried by a V-2 rocket from an altitude of 105 km.

This rocket is also the first man-made object to cross the Kármán line.

Although the rocket and the camera were destroyed, they said their goodbyes leaving only the film in the steel case.
