Inspirational: Carl Sagan and the Egyptian and Tunisian Revolutions

Chris Higgins

Okay, internet. We get it: every time Carl Sagan says “terraqueous globe,” nerds like me shed a tear. In this new beautiful Sagan “Pale Blue Dot” remix, Torrey Meeks combines footage of the Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions, time-lapse footage (reminiscent of Koyaanisqatsi), and Sagan’s increasingly famous “Pale Blue Dot” intro narration. Beautiful, touching, and well-made. Enjoy.

Stephen Hawking (Seriously), Documentaries I Like: Cosmos The Late Movies: COSMOS, NASA – The Frontier Is Everywhere, and Carl Sagan’s “Pale Blue Dot” Lives On. I think Sagan would be most proud of all the work he continues to inspire.
