You are here (Pale Blue Dot)

Carl Sagan

“It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience.” Carl Sagan

Powerful imagery coupled with compelling dialogue lends new perspective into the obscurity and co-dependence of the human condition. A simple image of our tiny world (“the pale blue dot”) seen from the far reaches of space reminds us just how small we actually are. Through this lens we see how foolish our perceived differences are, and that union beyond these misunderstandings is needed now more than ever.
