One of the many benefits of the first space flights to the moon in the late 1960s were beautiful pictures of planet Earth taken by the astronauts, that blue globe swathed in clouds and floating in the vastness of space. For many who saw them, the very perspective of those pictures changed their sense of our home—it seemed small, fragile even, and indeed, it is as we have learned. The earth is under threat from abuse and neglect, and we are responsible.
