This Photo Captured the First View of Earth From the Moon

But 50 years ago today, that changed when a NASA spacecraft captured the first-ever photograph of Earth from the moon. If you think the photo was the ubiquitous “blue marble”-style photograph, think again—that photo wasn’t taken until Apollo 17 traveled toward the moon in 1972.

This monkey is almost invincible


The moment disaster strikes – a hurricane hits, or forest fires rage out of control – we hear about the human impact. News feeds and social media light up with statistics about the magnitude of the tragedy, the number of fatalities, how many homes have been lost and how many people displaced. This sort of focus on human life is perfectly understandable, of course. But what often gets overlooked is that natural disasters also have an impact on local wild animals – some of them already vulnerable to extinction. When their habitats are destroyed, how do animals fare? Monkeys and apes alike can periodically have their rainforest habitat uprooted and destroyed around them. Researchers working in these disaster-prone regions have the dubious advantage of being able to study how animals cope when their habitat is dramatically altered.
