Saturdays Online: Let's Go Retro!

With all of our satellite connectivity, let's go retro and remember the first photo ever taken from space.

And to think that it all began when?  Well you'll have to read the article to find out...........

Let's continue the Retro Revisit and consider how early spy satellites returned their film (yes film) to Earth.  And while we are at it, Lets Celebrate the 42 year history of Landsat Program!  The most successful long term project in NASA History........


Some final views of the Theresa Mine.

Around the Mine Shaft at the Theresa Mine



The Old mine shaft elevator is still in place, although the mine shaft is secured by a steel grate.


The clouds from the opposite side were a bit more interesting........

The Theresa Mine, near Goldfield, Colorado


High on a Lonesome Hill........and on the edge of the current active mine site near Cripple Creek and Victor, Colorado.

Above cropping out that dreaded featureless sky that makes photography here so difficult.  See original below.....how nice it would have been to have clouds!


This was the first area we visited.  I think I was much more inspired later on in the trip.........
