That would be Gale and she would be awesome.
Snem! Time for another (mini) adventure soon :) Philly needs to get ready!
Pale Blue Dot - A photograph of Earth taken in 1990 by the Voyager 1 spacecraft from a record distance of about 3.7 billion miles away
The spacecraft, which had completed its primary mission and was leaving the Solar System, was commanded by NASA to turn its camera around and take a photograph of Earth across a great expanse of space, at the request of Carl Sagan.
“Consider again that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar’, every ‘supreme leader’, every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”
Gale we’re gonna need a bigger spare change bank.
Wow - and yeah, that’s gonna take a lot of quarters. Can’t wait! Adventures to be had :)
