Not to get all philosophical on you, but sometimes we at NOVA ask ourselves, what does science tell us about how to live our lives? What can it teach us about how to be better human beings? Better caretakers of our environment, our planet, each other? The best answer I know is captured in this excerpt from Carl Sagan's book Pale Blue Dot. A few months back, illustrator Adam Winnik set those words to his own animation, and the result is joyful, sad, sweet, and wonderful. Winnik writes that Sagan's words have changed his life. Check out the video, and let us know how science has changed your perspective.
