The photo was taken by the astronaut Michael Collins while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were returning to the command module for the journey home after having landed on the moon. With the Earth in the background, it’s a photo of everyone who was alive at the time. (Except for Michael Collins, of course.)
