Earth, the pale blue dot traveling through space; the only home we've ever known. Some reflections on that...
The Pale Blue Dot - Image of Earth captured by NASA Voyager spacecraft from 3.7 billion miles away, on 14 February 1990. Earth appears as a tiny dot halfway down the orange stripe on the right. From Voyager's great distance, our home planet appears as a mere point of light, a pale blue dot. Candice Hansen-Koharcheck, one of the two scientists who developed the software commands that made the photo possible, recalls that when she first saw the image of Earth her work had enabled, "It was just a little dot...not very large...You know, I still get chills down my back because here was our planet, bathed in this ray of light, and it just looked incredibly special."
