Time to Up the Ante
How could I induce NASA or the Russians to finally turn the cameras backwards? We could make a button! A button with the demand "Take a photograph of the entire earth." No, it had to be made a question. Use the great American resource of paranoia. 'Why haven't we seen a photograph of the whole Earth yet?' Ah. That was it. By the next morning, I got busy printing buttons and posters asking that question." -- Stewart Brand

We can get far enough from the Earth to photograph it, we may never be able to leave the universe.
