Pale blue dot[edit]

Shouldn't this article include the shot of earth from saturn, also possibly a mention of the pale blue dot photo? 50.80.153.173 (talk) 03:11, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

I couldn't find reliable sources that use the word "space selfies" on those photos so perhaps putting in the "see also" section is the right way to do to list the topics that are close enough. Z22 (talk) 06:16, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Buzz Aldrin Gemini Selfie[edit]

I'm surprised this article doesn't include what was probably the first Space Selfie, shot by Buzz Aldrin in 1966, during a Gemini EVA:

File:ISS-32 American EVA b3 Aki Hoshide.jpg to appear as POTD[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:ISS-32 American EVA b3 Aki Hoshide.jpg will be appearing as picture of the day on September 12, 2015. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2015-09-12. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page. Thanks! — Chris Woodrich (talk) 00:22, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Space selfie
A space selfie is a selfie that is taken in space; the term has been used to describe self-portraits by astronauts and machines such as rovers. This selfie was taken by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Akihiko Hoshide during a space walk at the International Space Station on 5 September 2012 and went viral after Commander Chris Hadfield posted it to his Twitter feed on 30 September 2013.Photograph: Akihiko Hoshide
