A Pale Blue Dot
A friend recently sent me this video and I felt the need to share it. There are so many profound points to ponder here I felt it must be shared. I hope those who watch it enjoy it and receive a message from it. Best wishes to all you bloggers and for the rest of this world may it live in peace.
This world owes Carl Sagan thanks for his book Pale Blue Dot and NASA a big thank you for making this video for the public to receive with open minds, hearts, and hopes.
A Pale blue dot (a very small blue dot!)
A profound message for all of us.
This excerpt from Carl Sagan’s book Pale Blue Dot (1994) was inspired by an image taken, at Sagan’s suggestion, by Voyager 1 on Feb 14, 1990.
From a distance of about 6 billion km. Voyager 1, which had completed its primary mission and was leaving the Solar System, was commanded by NASA to turn its camera around and take one last photo of Earth across a great expanse of space, at the request of Carl Sagan.
