On Valentines Day in 1990. Voyager 1 took the first famous “family portrait” of our solar system. It has six of the planets in it; Mars was too dark, Mercury too close to the sun to show, and Pluto was way too dim. This was a stunning physical representation of Carl Sagan’s description of the Earth as a “pale blue dot” in the scheme of the cosmos. 25 years later, we are still fascinated by our little blue and green planet and its role in the universe.
