Your Troubles May Seem Trivial After Watching This Video

A beautiful new video from "The Sagan Series" — an open-source project dedicated to spreading scientific literacy — has brought the words of the late astronomer, Carl Sagan, to life.

The video combines audio from Sagan's audiobook with footage of the world's most significant leaders, cultural events and natural beauty, stitching them together to create a complete picture of life on Earth. In its closing moments, Sagan makes a compelling plea for humans to take better care of one another and our planet.
