Pale Blue Dot - H1
Watching Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot" brings several interesting points of view to the surface. Many of the things that he saying in his narrative are often the same thoughts I have whenever I have the chance to stargaze. Sometimes it can be overwhelming just thinking of the vastness of our universe... And in all it's wonder and mystery are many questions that we will likely never know the answer to - such whether or not humans have a purpose aside from simply existing, whether or not there is a god (or gods), if fate is actually a thing, etc. Furthermore, it puts into perspective how trivial and insignificant our problems here on earth are on the scale of everything. For me, it's relieving.
