Dropping Science: Carl Sagan’s “Pale Blue Dot” Gets Animated
I’ve been wanting to do some regular updates about science stories that have interested me for a while now. As you might expect for somebody who writes a comic about a guy with a Moon for a head, I’m an entirely unabashed lover of all things space and I figure it’s only right that the book’s scientific inspirations get as much acknowledgement as its artistic ones. That and space is fucking cool
If we’re going to be posting stuff about space then I suppose it makes sense to start with some Carl Sagan. Seridan College student, Adam Winnik produced this short animation to accompany Sagan’s own narration of an excerpt from his book “Pale Blue Dot”. It’s a beautiful bit of animation to go with a beautiful bit of “scientific poetry”. I hope you enjoy it.
