Roamy here. Today is Yuri’s Night, the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s flight. Not only is it the anniversary of manned spaceflight but also the 30th anniversary of the first Space Shuttle launch. Space.com is inviting votes on their 50 most iconic photos of human spaceflight. I picked 15 of my own for the nerd-equivalent (?) of Load HEAT. There’s some overlap with Space.com – one can hardly argue with the Mercury 7, Apollo 11, and the Apollo 8 Earthrise photos – but I threw in a few that mean a lot to me.
