Pale Blue Dot

I feel extremely compelled to post this video on this blog. I found it from Albino Blacksheep. I think many of you would appreciate it (hopefully).

I can still remember reading those words from that book. How every war ever fought, every drop of blood ever spilled, every act of triumph and act of defeat took place on this pale blue dot. Generals led armies on wars and fought for a small piece of land, on a small clump of rock, around an ordinary star, in an average galaxy in a vast universe larger than anything we could comprehend. Yet, this does not make me depressed. In fact, it makes feel amazed at what we can explore.

Ok, I noticed I'm talking a lot like Neil deGrasse Tyson now. I'll stop.
