This video is part 7 of my continuing tribute to the late Carl Sagan.

Part 1: A Universe Not Made For Us
Part 2: Consider Again That Pale Blue Dot
Part 3: Wanderers
Part 4: The Gift of Apollo
Part 5: The Backbone of Night
Part 6: The Edge of Forever
Part 8: To The Sky
Part 9: You Are Here (Coming Soon)
Part 10: The Story of Everything (Coming Soon)

Excerpts were taken from Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space. More specifically, from the episode titled The Great Demotions. I edited together the audio from portions of the audio-book and added the video from:

- BBC Horizon: Are We Alone In The Universe
- BBC's Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life
- BBC's Enemies of Reason
- Discovery's Into The Universe with Stephen Hawking
- History Channel's The Universe: Alien Galaxies
- National Geographic's Birth of a Solar System

The music is a mixture of songs from the Lost soundtrack, by Michael Giacchino: Achara, Glad To See Me; Here Today, Gone To Maui; and Oceans Apart.

The Carl Sagan Tribute Series will continue, please subscribe to my channel if you wish to be among the first to see my newest videos.
