Pale Blue Dot – Carl Sagan

This video to the voice of Carl Sagan explores the vastness of space in comparison to the relative insignificant size of this pale blue dot called Earth. Sagan continues to illustrate the beauty and importance of the pale blue dot through the movements of life.

This dot is the only known vessel for life that is known in this universe, and that fact alone inspires pride and respect for our home… however long we may stay here.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Thick of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors, so that in glory and triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fragment of a dot.
