Pale Blue Dot – Animation Narrated by Carl Sagan

This is quite special – Adam Winnik, who recently graduated from Sheridan College in Ontario and is now looking for work (hint!) produced this for his final thesis piece. He, like many others, has always looked up to Sagan and when he first heard the words in this animation it changed his life.

Sagan always had a wonderful way with words; he could capture the most difficult subject and put it over in a way which anyone could understand. The simplicity of his words always enhances the profundity of their message.

This animation really does suit Carl Sagan’s words and message and the moment I had finished watching it I knew I had to share it! I hope that Adam is truly proud of this excellent culmination to four year’s undergraduate work!
