The most inspirational space video … ever

Inspiration-less? No double rainbows in sight? Worried that our human species is making a mess of things? Carl Sagan wants to tell you something.

We saw this on the website Public School, which we just realized is right here in our hometown of Austin, TX. Nice website, homies!

As Public School said, “Take beautiful imagery, a calm relaxing soundtrack and the words of the late great Carl Sagan and what do you get? You get the most inspirational fan created pro-NASA/space video ever.”

Michael Marantz created this video for NASA.

It’s true. It’s an inspiring video. He had me with, “It will not be we who reach Alpha Centauri and the nearby stars. It will be a species very like us, with more of our strengths and fewer of our weaknesses.”
