We've been hard at work on a special season two episode of The Elephant, and in advance of the release we've put together a special video trailer.
In late 1968, with the Apollo 8 mission, astronauts Jim Lovell, Frank Borman, and Bill Anders became the first human beings ever to leave Earth's orbit and head to another celestial body. But despite travelling some 200,000 miles and reaching the orbit of the moon, in the end it wasn't the images of the new frontiers that had the most lasting impact, but the view of back home.
Below is a short film meditation on the famous Earthrise photo - the first photo of the whole earth ever taken by humans. Featuring Apollo 8 Astronaut Jim Lovell, and footage from the Apollo missions, and was made by Jim Elson. Enjoy!
