The Pale Blue Dot

EARTH: The Pale Blue Dot from Michael Marantz on Vimeo.

Michael Marantz created the above video using his own video and music combined with Carl Sagan reading from his book The Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space. It's beautiful. And it reminds me how much I love Carl Sagan and how sad it makes me that he's gone.

Later Youtube user damewse used the audio from Marantz' video but created imagery of his own. He "got frustrated with NASA and made this video."

If NASA had the wherewithal to create videos like this themselves then maybe they would hold a different position in the public eye.

Both beautiful videos with great visuals, but in the end I think it's Sagan's words (and voice!) that really makes them great. If you haven't read A Pale Blue Dot go out and get it, you won't regret it.
