Want to take a humbling look at our place in the Universe? Than watch this 4 minute animated clip which features Carl Sagan’s famous “Pale Blue Dot” speech set to a series of images that help put his words into stirring context. Our planet is a small one, and really just a very insignificant place in the wide Universe. And yet, we still continue to have a hard time rising above our petty differences and just finding a way to get along. Sagan’s words echo that sentiment so eloquently, and they hold as much meaning now as they did when he first wrote them more than 20 years ago. This Pale Blue Dot is our home, perhaps someday we’ll all find a way to share it.
