“The story that changed my perspective was Carl Sagan’s book Pale Blue Dot. Inspired by the image taken by Voyager 1 on 14 February 1990. The spacecraft was departing and it turned around and took a picture of Earth. It’s terrifying to see how small we really are in the solar system. This image changed my perspective on life.”
