Breese Little gallery's latest exhibition, For All Mankind, may be a small star in London's galaxy of art shows but the 100 Nasa photos on display document our lofty ambitions to understand the universe. These rare images cover 20 years of Nasa missions and include the iconic Blue Marble: the first photograph of a full Earth view, taken from space shuttle Apollo 17. The exhibition is timely: outer space is making a comeback in the popular consciousness with Hollywood films such as Gravity and Richard Branson selling tickets for commercial space travel even as Nasa funds shrink, threatening scientific expeditions to Mars and Saturn.
