This is the sequel to Sagan's highly acclaimed Cosmos.

A thousand years from now, our epoch will be remembered as the time when we first left the Earth and saw it from beyond the outermost planet as a pale blue dot, almost lost against the backdrop of the stars. Now, the astronomer who opened the wonders of the Universe to so many people takes us forward from these early maneuverings in space, suggesting that our very survival depends on the exploration and settlement of other worlds. The Pale Blue Dot reveals how science has revolutionized our understanding of where we stand and who we are--and challenges us to weigh what we will do with that knowledge. Sagan urges us to see beyond our sometimes-reluctant recognition of our true place in the Cosmos, Sagan, presents a thrilling vision of an exhilarating future with a surprisingly spiritual impact.
