About this Event

On February 14, 1990, NASA’s Voyager 1 took an image of earth from 4 billion miles away. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of this iconic image, TEDxCU 2020 speakers will inspire and challenge us to think about how our past and present could shape our future.

Due to the global pandemic we will not host a live audience. Instead, we will be offering a free livestream. Registration required. Livestream links will be e-mailed the week of the event to those who have registered.

While registration is free, we do ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation to TEDxCU. We are a student-centered team that relies on ticket sales and sponsorships to make our events a reality. Please consider donating: click here.

Voyager 1’s image inspired the title of Carl Sagan’s 1994 book, “Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space.”

“Look again at that dot,” Sagan wrote in his book “Pale Blue Dot.” “That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar,’ every ‘supreme leader,’ every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”

— Carl Sagan, “Pale Blue Dot,” 1994
