We're right there - all together. On that tiny blue dot (as seen by Cassini from beyond the rings of Saturn).

That is cool!

Wow, awesome! We're all on this tiny little speck in the great vast universe. It's quite humbling when you think of it.

Wow! Amazing. Puts everything in perspective.

Right!? Went to the IMAX and watched Hidden Universe a couple weeks ago. You talk about feeling completely puny and insignificant by the end of the film!

We ARE puny, yet truly significant

If an asteroid crashed into the planet, who would miss us?

@ SMY!

..I think I can see my house!!

TR, when my DD was in elementary school she came home singing a song called "The Little Blue Top" (don't know if you've heard it, it was new to me when she started singing it), all about this earth we're all riding on. Here are the lyrics, it seems appropriate, hope you don't mind...

The Little Blue Top
(Tony Hughes)

Round & round goes the little blue top
Whirling and turning with never a stop
Dappled with white, dappled with brown
The little blue top keeps a-turning around

Oh there's wild raging oceans and proud mountain chains
Green, peaceful valleys and wide grassy plains
Families of life that each setting contains
Dolphins and spiders and cattle and cranes

And there's red folk & white folk & yellow folk too
Black folk & brown folk to name just a few
Folks green with envy and others who're blue

Oh there's teachers & lawyers & medicine men
Places to go to & people who've been
Others who stay home & tend to the shop
And they whirl & turn on the little blue top

But there're some who are greedy & some who don't care
And they're fouling our rivers & poisoning our air
If all of the rest of us don't make them stop
They might end the life on the little blue top

Cool. Like another version of the Pale Blue Dot.
