Buzz Aldrin Takes Outer Space’s First Selfie
Buzz Aldrin is a former made history with the famous 1969 walk on the Moon, but unlike his colleague, Neil Armstrong, he wasn’t the first one to step out of the Lunar Module “Eagle.”
However, there is another “first” that belongs to Buzz Aldrin and that’s the first selfie ever taken in space.
It was November 12, 1966, and Aldrin was on his first journey to space with the Gemini 12 mission when he saw this breathtaking view of Earth and took advantage of the opportunity.
The Oscar Pic That Blew up the Internet
This legendary Oscar selfie was taken during the 2014 ceremony hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.
The “official” photo credit goes to Bradley Cooper who was holding the camera, but the acknowledgments for creative initiative certainly belong to Ellen. DeGeneres ran down into the audience and rounded up some of the world’s biggest movie stars for the pic.
The moment she posted it on Twitter, people went crazy over it and retweeted the photo more than three million times.
