little blue planet (take 2)…

The first time we were able to see our planet from space – a single, blue jewel floating in the void – it changed how we saw Earth – how we saw ourselves – profoundly. We have now found other worlds circling other suns – hundreds (?) of them… At first we could only detect massive ones – bigger even than our Jupiter. But we have recently been able to detect planets just a few times larger than Earth. I have no doubt that eventually we will be able to not only find planets the size of Earth, but to image them too…

Consider your reaction when you will first see a picture of another little blue planet… Imagine how we will all react when we look upon another ‘Earth’, but with different continents…
