“The greatest fallout of the space program was not a close–up view of the moon, but a look at spaceship Earth from afar. For the first time in the history of humanity, we were able to see our planet for what it really is.”
–Fr. Theodore Hesburgh, former president, University of Notre Dame
The Earth not only seems more delicate because of the “Whole Earth” photograph, but it also has a spaceship–like quality when seen alone against the vastness of space. Manno’s artwork and chosen quotation work together here to express the uniqueness of life on Earth.
