at that dot.
That's here. That's home. That's us.
On it everyone you love, everyone you know,
everyone you ever heard of, every human being
who ever was, lived out their lives....
every young couple in love, every mother and father,
hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals,
every corrupt politician, every "superstar,"
every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the
history of our species lived there—
on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
– Carl Sagan, commenting on a photo of Earth taken by Voyager 1 on February 14, 1990.
As the spacecraft left our solar system, NASA turned it around for one last look at home.
And for the first time, we understood ourselves as a tiny point of light.
