The Earth Says, ‘Hello’

August 20, 2010

This video feels to me like a prayer: a plea to God, to humanity, and to the entire universe to notice and take care of the tremendous, fragile, complex, precious life on this little planet called Earth–“our island home” as Eucharistic Prayer C puts it. The audio is taken from Voyager’s “Golden Record”–a recording originally compiled by Carl Sagan in 1977–that NASA sent out into space to serve as a greeting to any intelligent life that may be lurking somewhere, anywhere, everywhere.
