For the first time, a photo was taken with every person, living or dead, in frame. Everyone that is except for three. Who were those three?

  • $\begingroup$ @Eagle I thought about doing that, but I thought 3 was a better hint and less likely to have alternate correct answers (everyone but the photographer might have other clever options). $\endgroup$

The three astronauts in the space shuttle taking the photo: Frank Borman, James Lovell, and William Anders.

The photo is called Earthrise and was taken during the Apollo 8 mission in 1968.

  • $\begingroup$ I thought I might fool people with the later, more famous, group of three. Great job, remembering these earlier pioneers! $\endgroup$
