Carl Sagan on Charlie Rose: A Pale Blue Dot Capable of Greatness

I have previously posted a version of Carl Sagan‘s Pale Blue Dot.

However, since it is one of my all time favorites, I cannot help it but re-post another high definition version with the same sound but different video. I find it provides a uniquely cosmic perspective that we can often benefit from in our daily lives.

I recommend watching the first 2 videos at maximum quality and full screen.


We Humans Are Capable Of Greatness

Even though we are all infinitely small specs on an infinitely small spec in an endless universe, we humans are indeed capable of greatness. Check out Carl Sagan’s vision of the human future in space.


If, like me, you find yourself both moved and inspired by Carl Sagan’s voice, then you may want to watch the last video below too. It is the full recording of Carl Sagan’s original Charlie Rose Interview in which he discusses his titular book Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space.
