Pale Blue Dot

This is the photo Voyager 1 took of Earth.


Earth, from approximately 4 billion miles away.

It's called the Pale Blue Dot,
which is also the title and inspiration of a book by Carl Sagan.

This is definitely worth watching, and listening to as Carl Sagan speaks.




"It underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another,
and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot,
the only home we've ever known."
~ Carl Sagan ~

Doesn't this just make us realize "where" we are and put everything into perspective?
