The Mote in God’s Eye

This video from the late astronomer Carl Sagan puts all of our troubles into perspective. He called Earth the Pale Blue Dot . We live on the only world fit for human habitation as far as we know.

Our Pale Blue Dot is in a sea of black inhabited by comets, nebulae and gases yet we live on, protected by our atmosphere.

*With apologies to Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle. Their book The Mote in God’s Eye is an excellent read.
