Today's the birthday of Carl Sagan.
On clear nights in Perth or Copenhagen,
He said we could see, light-years past Mars,
With our telescopes, billions and billions of stars.
Food for thought:
"Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people." [Carl Sagan]
