I recently visited Easter Island and wrote a piece about it on my blog:
"A comparison could be drawn between their life on the island to the famous literature piece by Carl Sagan called Pale Blue Dot. In this, Carl Sagan describes a photo of earth taken from the Voyager 1 Space Probe as it's about to leave the Solar System. With her last breath, the probe sent back a photo of Earth shown as a faded little dot, suspended in a sunbeam in the vastness of space. In this piece, Carl Sagan describes the insignificance of human existence by poetically reminding us that all that we know as humans, all that we will possibly ever know, is shown in this single photo as a little, pale blue dot in the middle of nowhere. "
Easter island is a pale green dot in the vast Pacific Ocean.
