a collection of first images

jason kottke found this collection of the world's first images. included: world's first color photo, first photo taken from space, first photo of a complete molecule (taken in 2009), etc.

here's first image of the surface of another planet taken from a soviet probe in 1975. aah to have experienced the suspense this generated... *cue 2001 a space odyssey score*
