Unseen NASA Photographs Reveal The Beauty Of Outer Space

The world was introduced to the very first photograph from space on 24th October 1946, a shot of earth taken 65 miles above the planet. The iconic image was captured by a V-2 rocket, designed to capture a frame every 1.5 seconds prior to delivering a steel cassette of film back to the ground just minutes after it launched. Here are some of the rare, unseen NASA photographs revealing the vintage beauty of outer space:
