“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.” – Carl Sagan

The photograph of planet Earth taken on February 14, 1990, by the Voyager 1 space probe is a farthest picture of earth taken from a distance of about 6 billion kilometers. In that photograph, the size of our planet is less than a pixel as it appears like a tiny dot against the vastness of space.

The “Pale Blue Dot” looks like a one tiny speck among bands of sunlight scattered by the camera’s optics. This photo of Earth across the great expanse was taken at the request of astronomer and author, Carl Sagan.
