50th Anniversary of 'Earthrise'

by William Anders'

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the iconic photograph Earthrise, taken by astronaut William Anders'.


On this momentous occasion, we look back at our Edinburgh Art Festival exhibition, Jacob's Ladder, an exhibition celebrating mankind's relationship with space, which exhibited this image alongside a series of vintage photographs taken by the crewmen of NASA’s Apollo 8 and Apollo 9.
