Awesome! Did you create this yourself, or find it somewhere?

Found! It seems to be a modified image/text from Carl Sagan's book: Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pale_Blue_Dot:_A_Vision_of_the_Human_Future_in_Space

A powerful image. One of many that Sagan presented. Although my son the Physics professor disagrees, I think Sagan was a giant.

Carl Sagan knows more science than me, so he is a giant from my perspective. But even if he contributed nothing more than enthusiasm for attentiveness to the cosmos, I would love him.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
