Earth rise

One of the robotic probes on Mars took this image, compiled from 30 or so images 60 seconds apart.

What does it show? All of us, even more stirring everywhere anyone in our species has ever been and all of our history - it all took place on this dot (or to quote Carl Sagan a blue dot, well this image isn't colour but ok).

That white dot is Earth.

And people wonder why I think countries are an outdated concept. You don't see nations from space, just one united species, the human race.
