Check out the cool, unaccountably moving video (below) by David Fu to accompany the late great astronomer/educator/author Carl Sagan's reading of "We Are Here" from his 1994 book Cosmos.) Here's some of the Wikipedia entry:
The Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of planet Earth taken in 1990 by Voyager 1 from a record distance, showing it against the vastness of space. By request of Carl Sagan, NASA commanded the Voyager 1 spacecraft, having completed its primary mission and now leaving the Solar System, to turn its camera around and to take a photograph of Earth across a great expanse of space. Subsequently, the title of the photograph was used by Sagan as the primary title of his 1994 book, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space.
