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.

Formula 1 Wall of Champions

Formula One World Champions since 1950I finally completed a little home decorating project; my F1 Wall of Champions.

Every formula one word champion since 1950 proudly displaying their year(s) of victory (Schumacher was a bit of a squeeze!). Stitched together on Photoshop, I had this printed on a large canvas which now graces my living room wall.
