Post A Pale Blue Dot 
 
A Pale Blue Dot was inspired by an image taken, at Carl Sagan's suggestion, by Voyager 1 on February 14, 1990.
As the spacecraft left our planetary neighbourhood for the fringes of the solar system, engineers turned it around for one last look at its home planet.
Voyager 1 was about 6.4 billion kilometres (4 billion miles) away, and approximately 32 degrees above the ecliptic plane, when it captured this portrait of our world.
Caught in the centre of scattered light rays (a result of taking the picture so close to the Sun), Earth appears as a tiny point of light, a crescent only 0.12 pixel in size.

The scientific community estimates that humans contribute to between 35 - 150 global extinctions per day.
Growth, development and technological advancement, it makes you wonder how many species will become extinct that we don't know about?
How many will become extinct that we know off and our grand kids will only read about?
