Image result for dust

Here is a short reading by actor Robert Picardo from Carl Sagan's The Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space (1994).

Carl Sagan made a suggestion that an image of Earth from deep space should be made. On February 14, 1990 Voyager 1 was commanded to turn around, look back and take a photograph just as it was leaving our neighborhood...this "mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."

Ring out wild bells.
