Science & Astronomy
9. November 2013

Each year I completely forget about Carl Sagan Day and I get reminded by the internet about it. But this year, the reminder is something special: Mad Art Lab’s Ryan Consell has created a crowdsourced reading of Carl Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot, which is absolutely wonderous and beautiful. Even better, as I’m writing this, I’m watching two russian Astronauts perform a spacewalk on the ISS and the Pale Blue Dot keeps rolling the background. You can’t help but feel really, really small, but in an absolutely wonderful and awe-inspiring way. H/T to Nicole Gugliucci of CosmoQuest, on whose stream I’ve seen the video first!
