It starts slowly… takes about 2 mins to start winding up.

In the words of the poster,

“The Pale Blue Dot: The picture of Earth from 4 billion miles away. As told by Carl Sagan through some my favorite films set to the music of Mogwai.”

This is about a 5 minute film at www.stage6.com . If you’ve not been there, you are in for a treat. Most of the videos are high res and can be played full screen.

Very good clip. Thanks!

That quick shot of Tom Cruise nearly ruined it thought. (jk)

I also like those videos showing Earth, then zooming out to larger planets, then larger stars, and even stars many times larger than our sun seems tiny compared to even larger stars.
