Carl Sagan’s Beautiful Words About the Moon Landing

Armstrong on MoonLanding on the moon wasn’t just a nationalistic venture, but a triumph for the whole of the human species. We, at this step in our evolution of life on this planet, sent members of our family to the rock that has floated in our skies since the formation of Earth. It’s difficult to imagine something more poetic, courageous, and empowering than the moon landing. In this video, Carl Sagan articulates that profound impact from the landing of Apollo 11 on the human condition. His words, as always, convey a rare sense of magnificence and appreciation that space exploration truly deserves. From now on, when you look up at the moon, take a second to consider the scale of achievement conquered by the tiny little organisms inhabiting the big blue marble you call Earth.
