What’s in the name?

‘Pale Blue Dot’ is a photograph of Earth taken in 1990 by the Voyager 1 spacecraft from a record distance of about 6 billion kilometres. Even though Earth would appear too small to give any detail, Carl Sagan felt the photograph would give us perspective on our place in the universe, and this perspective – “the Earth is where we make our stand… preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known” – is what led the Pale Blue Dot Energy founders to the name!
