Interlude: The Tiny Blue Dot

#nasa #jpl #blog #video #avgeek #aviation


45 years ago, a single photo changed humanity's view of itself.

Taken by the astronauts of Apollo 8 in orbit around the moon,
the photo shows a tiny blue dot—an oasis—in the vastness of space.
That fragile blue oasis is called Earth.
This is the story of that amazing photo, taken almost by chance.





In that vein, here's another shot, taken from the Cassini spacecraft
as it whips around Saturn and looks back at home.

Carl Sagan's take on the Pale Blue Dot. Something we should all contemplate:




Peace to all my brothers and sisters around the Tiny blue dot!
