Pale Blue Dot

As NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft was about to leave our Solar System in 1989, Carl Sagan pleaded with officials to turn the camera around to take one last look back at Earth before the spaceship left our solar system. The resulting image of the earth from 3.7bn miles away became known as ‘the pale blue dot.’

If ever you need perspective, just think; pale blue dot.

Tomb of Michelangelo, Basilica di Santa Croce

Tomb of Michelangelo, Basilica of Santa Croce

The tomb of Michelangelo Buonarroti can be found in the Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence, Italy. Realised by Vasari in 1570, the tomb includes three marble sculptures representing the personifications of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, saddened by the death of the great master.

It is Sculpture however, that is most distraught to have lost such a genius.
