The Pale Blue Dot

My Dad has been saying for many years, if you want to know how important you are, go spend a day walking around the city alone. As per usual with humans though, this thinking makes us out to be much larger than we actually are.

This speech by Carl Sagan has been around for a while, but every now and then I think it’s worth sharing again, and well, I haven’t shared it on this blog yet. What’s remarkable is how he manages to sumarize just how insignificant we are, yet at the same time inspire.
