    It is said this picture killed an industry. On May 6, 1937, the Hindenburg dirigible exploded killing 35 of the 97 people aboard. The incident killed the zeppelin travel industry, which was, at the time, considered the safest mode of air travel available. The funny thing is that it wasn’t the worst zeppelin accident but the only one cought on a picture…



    And the original newsreel footage. Amazing stuff:

    There was a pic for the Tsar Bomba
    before they launched it
    it was originally suppose to be 100megatons, but obviously
    no airplane could go high enough, or fast enough to out run it.
    the pic had a 50megaton stack, on the left, and on the right it had
    the originally planned 100megaton stack, huge huge ...
    it was detonated at a higher altitude than other A/H bombs
    so there was less radioactive fall out

    yes, Rocky, thats the one

    also, Hypo i think that they also couldnt detonate something that big as well, so they had to scale it down to half its size so that it would explode.

    Take the time to read about the origin of these pics and feel free to add your own pictures that define an era or you find impressive, moving or whatever:

    Amazing & Landmark photos

    June 11, 1963, Thich Quang Duc, a Buddhist monk from Vietnam, burned himself to death at a busy intersection in downtown Saigon to bring attention to the repressive policies of the Catholic Diem regime that controlled the South Vietnamese government at the time. Buddhist monks asked the regime to lift its ban on flying the traditional Buddhist flag, to grant Buddhism the same rights as Catholicism, to stop detaining Buddhists and to give Buddhist monks and nuns the right to practice and spread their religion.

    While burning Thich Quang Duc never moved a muscle.
    Rage Against The Machine could hardly have picked a more fitting album cover for their first album. Its an intense photograph.

    This is the iconic photo of Che Guevara, the Argentine born Marxist revolutionary who is most famous for his role in the Cuban revolution. The photo was taken by Alberto Korda, who gave the photo to an Italian publisher and it became a rallying point for leftist movements everywhere. Ironically the image has since become a fashion icon and has been used in advertisements worldwide. Korda never received any royalties for his photograph.

    This is a photo taken by Roberto Capa during the Spanish Civil war of a Loyalist militiaman who has just received a mortal shot and is falling to the ground. Because of his proximity to the victim and the timing of the photograph there has been a lot of controversy over the authenticity of the moment but the dead soldier has since been identified as Federico Borrell García and a there is a second photo including another soldier who died on the same spot.

    As a companion piece to this shot:

    After capturing and executing Che in 1967, before bury him in a secret tomb, the executioners made a group photo with the body, to demonstrate the people that EL GRAN CHE is dead. The picture actually made him a legend, his admirers said he had a forgiving look on his face and compared him with Jesus.

    This picture is one of the most famous moments in sporting history! It shows Cassius Clay knocking out Sonny Liston (former heavy weight champion) in the first minute of the first round, in a rematch (Muhammad won the match the year before after Sonny resigned to defeat complaining of a shoulder injury).

    Speculations circulated about Liston’s fall, many spectators considered the bout fixed, even the FBI investigated the case. Some say while preparing for the fight, Liston was visited by Black Muslims who threatened to kill his daughter Eleanor if he should win the rematch, others say Liston lay down for money.

    The Rev. Mychal F. Judge, a fire chaplain, was fatally struck by falling debris soon after administering last rites to a firefighter at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

    For 40 years, Father Judge tirelessly ministered to firefighters, their grieving widows, AIDS patients, homeless people, Flight 800 victims' families and countless others. At his funeral, Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani called him a saint, a sentiment that admirers have followed up by campaigning for his canonization. A simple prayer that Father Judge wrote has been circulated around the world and attached to thousands of donations to the needy. Pope John Paul II accepted the gift of his helmet.

    Father Judge was also, according to many of his friends of all sexual orientations, a homosexual. A celibate homosexual, he told friends, but a homosexual nonetheless. And reports last week that the Vatican is likely to try to bar gay men, even celibate ones, from the priesthood stirred anger among those who revere his memory.

    Yeah, I felt pretty shitty after seeing that picture.
