Over time, the world, nature, humans and objects have been the best muses for photographers since the invention of photography ever since. But the art of photography did not stop here on Earth; the man was also able to take pictures in space. An image of July 21, 1969 is the best evidence of what a photograph can reveal. The Lunar Eagle was captured on returning to the Command Module from the surface of the Moon by a single man who is not appearing in any of the images.
What's the story behind the picture?
There is a theory called the Law of Conservation of Mass satisfying that the material of every human being (dead, alive or unborn) is in the photo except one! The photographer behind the camera is Michael Collins, one of the third crew of the Apollo 11 mission. Collins was the man who did not step on the moon, and the most praised astronauts were Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin because they raised the American flag. Collins was the man who remained in the command module, orbiting the Moon, and waiting for his partners to finish the mission. If anything went wrong, Collins had to leave them and return to Earth.
Collins is still remembering the memories of that time and his fears. The secret terror was the thought that if they failed to rise above the surface, he would not commit suicide by going after them, he would return home. Everyone was prepared for an unfortunate event; even President Nixon had prepared a speech for failure, not just for victory.
In addition, the astronaut was cut off from any contact with Earth and was alone in the ship. When Neil and Aldrin were traveling on the Eagle, Collins was repeating himself to them to keep talking to him, not to feel the feeling that he is completely alone. In addition, his fear was shared by all the people involved in the mission. Finally, faith was with them, and the mission was a success, and Collin, Neil, and Aldrin returned safely to Earth.
