Today is February 14th, also commonly known as ‘Valentine’s Day’. Some people dedicate this day to express love for their beloved. So for many this is a busy day like normal days, but few know that February 14 is another day. Yes, even science enthusiasts have been passionate about February 14 every year for at least the last 3 decades. Because science-minded people are celebrating ‘light blue dots’ every year on this day, this may sound strange to the general public, but the concept is enough to open the windows of the mind.

Science enthusiasts know that there are a total of 3 spacecraft man-made, 2 of which have gone beyond our solar system. And the third is on the edge of the solar system, these space vehicles are Voyager One, Voyager II and New Horizons, the three set their own destinations and provided us with information about the outer planets of the solar system, including Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, and the dwarf planet Pluto. But the Voyager One spacecraft made the feat that is mentioned in every scientific and philosophical event to date.

Something happened in the early 1990s with the famous astronomer, Dr. Carl Segan, who was also a consultant to NASA’s early days at the spacecraft. He advised that the Voyager One spacecraft, which had just moved beyond the orbit of Neptune, would be oriented toward Earth. And take a picture of the solar system at a distance of about 6 billion kilometers. So on February 14, 1990, NASA sent a message to launch a camera on a Voyager One spacecraft. And as per standard time, on February 14, 1990, Voyager One turned its attention to the center of the solar system and drew a historical image. In which this dim blue light was hanging in the sunlight, at which time about 5 billion people were engaged in their daily lives.

“Since no human has ever been so far away and the future cannot come near, seeing all humanity imprisoned from this place in a small point gives us humans a sense of their worth in this universe, Today, it has been 30 years since the Voyager One captured this image, and this spacecraft is now in the space between the ‘Interstellar Space’. Astronomical celebrations are taking place on the 30th anniversary of this point from 14 February 2020 to 20 February 2020 in the world. In addition to providing astronomical information to people, telescopes will be observed in the sky. In this photo, the whole story hidden behind this dim blue dot hidden under the sun’s light is described by Carl Segan in his 1994 book, “Dim Blue Point: The Human Future in Space.” The view was “in this book he draws so beautifully on human and human thinking that the reader is surprised.

The image of the Earth from the edge of the solar system sent by the Voyager One spacecraft was less than one pixel in size. If we start to look at this picture, the whole ocean of thought will come to fruition because this point is where everyone you have read in history or you have met in reality. It was at this point that many kings endured atrocities on their slaves, where many lovers were stoned. And for the smallest part of the point, many tribes bleed each other and many religions came into being here and governments were formed and corruption happened, especially since we humans have been on this earth for almost two million years but have reached this stage of development whereas only 12 of the 7 billion people have come through the moon.

After reading this, entire one is compelled to think how low our position in this universe is in this world. Yet, many of us turn out to be ‘God’. It is true that we humans are very small in this universe but our thinking can take us beyond the stars. Therefore, we should not run our wits and build a positive attitude in our society, rather than showing our affection to others.
