“The Pale Blue Dot.” A few words by known astrophysicist (among other titles) Carl Sagan.

Voyager 1 had completed its primary mission and was leaving the Solar System. Carl Sagan asked NASA to turn its camera back to Earth all the way back from Saturn for one last photograph of Earth. (Source: WikiPedia and Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey).

Below is the video from Cosmos with Carl Sagan’s voice.

Read the speech on the The Planetary Society‘s website.

P.S.: Cosmos (presented by Neil deGrasse Tyson) is available on Netflix!
