‘I was able to look out the window, to see this incredible sight, of the whole circle of the earth. Oceans were crystal blue, the land was brown, and the clouds and the snow were pure white, and that jewel of Earth was just hung, up in the blackness of space. The only people that have seen the whole circle of the earth are the twenty-four guys that went to the moon.’

Charles Moss Duke Jr., Apollo 16, the tenth and youngest person to walk on the moon
