The Frontier Is Everywhere: A NASA Tribute

Nearly two years ago, we noted that NASA could learn a thing or two about inspiring the public and rousing excitement around its monumentally important work. Now, one NASA fan has taken it upon himself to bridge the frustrating gap between NASA’s deeply inspirational work and the toothless official communication about it, remixing breathtaking footage of our planet and the cosmos with an audio excerpt from Carl Sagan’s iconic Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space.

For all our failings, despite our limitations and fallibilities, we humans are capable of greatness.” ~ Carl Sagan

For more of Sagan’s glorious vision for the future of mankind in the universe, don’t miss this fantastic 9-minute animated adaptation of Pale Blue Dot.
