The 'Pale Blue Dot' is a photograph of Earth taken 14 Feb 1990, by NASA’s Voyager 1 at a distance of 3.7 billion miles (6 billion kilometers) from the Sun. The image inspired the title of scientist Carl Sagan's book, "Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space," in which he wrote: "Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us."
Sagan had the idea in 1981 to use the cameras on the Voyager spacecraft to image Earth. He realised that because the spacecraft was so far away the images might not show much. This was precisely why Sagan and other members of the Voyager team felt the images were needed — they wanted humanity to see Earth’s vulnerability and that our home world is just a tiny, fragile speck in the cosmic ocean.
It's our only home. We need to look after it with all of the energy sources we have.
