Dedicated to the memory of Carl Sagan. You are deeply missed.
(Nov 9, 1934 - Dec 20, 1996)
Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.
Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space, 1994
