That first, incredibly wonderful black-and-white Earthrise photo  
almost didn't happen. From NASA transcripts:

075:47:30 Borman (onboard): Oh, my God! Look at that picture over  
there! Here's the Earth coming up. Wow, is that pretty!

075:47:37 Anders (onboard): Hey, don't take that, it's not scheduled.

There was limited film available for the Hasselblad ... and what was  
in it at that moment was a black-and-white magazine.
