Pale Blue dot

If you do not know what this is, this is what Carl Sagan called the Mother Earth on a historical photograph captured from pioneer space ship.
Here is a link to You tube video which explains it here.
It is very philosophical while being a pure astro-physical concept. While we run through our daily lives, it is introspective to know our place in universe and how teeny-tiny our existence is and yet how important and how lucky.
All that happened so far, the men who lived, the wars fought, the triumphs obtained, the history made, the discoveries made, the religions followed and the religions extinct are all part of the space and time Mother Earth provided us.
We should be happy when we realize this.
We need more people like Carl Sagan who can bring in so much passion to masses in science.
