Pictured above, it was purchased by the French National Library for $392,000 in 2002.

Same guy, but this was on the Skeptics Guide to the Universe today on their Science or Fiction segment.


Taken in 1826 or 1827 by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, the world’s oldest surviving photograph was captured using a technique Niépce invented called heliography, which produces one-of-a-kind images on metal plates treated with light-sensitive chemicals.
