"There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known." - Carl Sagan

Seldom is there a photograph so breathtakingly beautiful that it can alter your perspective about your place in the Cosmos. Last year, the Cassini probe orbiting Saturn took such a photo showing the Earth as seen from the outer Solar System.

Encapsulated within this photograph is a reminder of how incredibly small we are and also how far we've come as a species. Photographs, such as this, give us pause and remind us of the common bonds we all share and of the insignificance of that which divides us. Take a moment to appreciate this Pale Blue Dot we all share.

Watch The Pale Blue Dot created by Reid Gower for +The Sagan Series: THE SAGAN SERIES - The Pale Blue Dot

Sounds like a great program. I need to start a non-profit...

When you give animals human clothes, they start making horror movies.

I got my beta Gmail account 6/19/04.  I've been loving it ever since.
It wasn't the first, but since day one, Gmail has always been the best email service
