Pale Blue Dot

I’m sure you’ve heard Carl Sagan’s famous Pale Blue Dot, a beautiful tribute to our little, fragile planet.

As the Voyager 1 spacecraft was leaving our solar system, Sagan requested it take one final image on its way out. The image is here. If you look carefully, you’ll see the tiniest speck of light on the right side. That is Earth. That is us. As he states, everything we’ve ever known or loved.
