A pale blue dot

dot

The animated interpretation of Carl Sagan’s “Pale Blue Dot” monologue, inspired by the photo of Earth taken from the Voyager 1 space probe in 1990.

Although left out of this video, I especially enjoyed how Carl Sagan completed his reflection with the following sentences:

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, 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.
