You Are Here – a beautiful speech by Carl Sagan (Video)

208 2

An image taken by the Voyager 1 spacecraft as it exited our solar system shows the Earth some 4 billion miles away. Astronomer Carl Sagan describes brilliantly how every single person and living thing we have come to know, exists only on this “pale, blue dot.”

    I prefer the video of Greener Pale Blue Dot. And with the music of Vangelis from COSMOS.

    Dear Chive,
    I formed a dodgeball team in one of the DC’s sports leagues. Our name is KCCO. I am the only loyal chiver on the team, but don’t worry they will all be loyal chivers and chivettes before the season is over. The league will provide us shirts for the games, but I was wondering if we could somehow get Chive sponsorship on our shirts to. We would definitely stand out and it would certainly help promote and market the awesomeness of Chive. Also since the Chive shirts sold out in 2 minutes literally. I tried to buy one after 3 minutes of the release time, but there was -3 left by the time I checked out. Keep up the good work and hopefully you can hook up your loyal chiver and future chivers and chivettes.

    How sad that Sagan gives no credit to the Lord God Almighty for His glorious creation, and the hope we all have through His Son, Jesus Christ

      That's quite simple: he didn't believe in God.
      No point on praying to the law of gravity…

    The kid at 54 is from braveheart. The part where they gutted old Mel.

    My mentor and meta-physical guru. I have a tattered print of, “Cosmos” on my desk right this moment that’s just calling my name.

    This video was an inspiring change of pace for this crowd, and I hope more people than just myself took a good deal of inspiration from his poignant and creatively poetic message.
