“Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. […] 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.”
–Pale Blue Dot, Carl Sagan–
This blog is dedicated to Carl Sagan. Here, I will engage in the ongoing “conversation” of science and its relevance to the future of humanity.
