Pale Blue Dot

James Newberg (AKA Jaws the Cabbie)

Pale Blue Dot

Emily, as you know, I've zinged the Planetary Society and the JPL (and yourself) with a few of my photo shopped cartoons from time to time, and I wait with baited breath for more Cassini images from Titan...the lakes region photos were real jaw droppers for me. But the one photo that really grabbed me and held on to me from all the stunning images sent back by our deep space probes was the pale blue dot photo from voyager. I still use that one to meditate on when I feel my sense of perspective is in need of adjustment (when I meditate, I use techniques I learned from taking Southern Praying Mantis Kung Fu instruction over thirty years ago). Oh, by the way...I'm the one that sent you the coffee cup with the Gliese 581 cartoon on of my designs, did you get it?
