Astronomer Carl Sagan´s voice is heard on this video. Maybe some of you do remember his documentary Cosmos? This is Sagan´s attempt to get us, human beings, in perspective within the vastness of the universe. Watch the scene, work with your teacher on its vocabulary, and watch it again, as many times as you feel like. Real food for thought. Enjoy it.
