Sagan was inspired by an image taken, at his own suggestion, by Voyager 1 on February 14, 1990. As the spacecraft moved towards the outer edges of our solar system, engineers turned it around to gaze upon our tiny planet. Voyager 1 was approximately 4 billion miles away when it captured a portrait of earth, appearing only as a tiny point of light, a pale blue dot.   Sagan later profoundly describes in his book just how small we are in the vastness of the cosmos, a community floating on “a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam”.  “There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.” — Carl Sagan   Website   madebysawdust.co.uk    How to purchase this poster  Limited editions of CommUnity posters are available at Plotnet Prints ( plotnetprints.com ).
