Join Dr. Siobhan Angus, Assistant Professor of Communication and Media Studies at Carleton University, for a mini-lecture entitled, Seeing the Big Picture: The Blue Marble from Apollo 17 to Environmental Advocacy.

In 1972, Apollo 17 astronauts captured a photograph of Earth, known as “The Blue Marble.” This image swiftly gained recognition as a symbol of environmental awareness and human connection to the planet. This lecture explores the significance of “The Blue Marble,” analyzing its role in sparking global environmental movements and shaping a collective understanding of Earth’s fragility and interconnectedness. Visual representations of Earth highlight the complexities of reconciling scientific truth with skepticism, particularly in the face of environmental crises and disinformation.
