Earth Day… shot on iPhone


Ny video fra Apple i serien «Shot on iPhone», denne gang med videoer fra brukere omkring i verden. Flere teknikker vises, slik som «sakte» (slow-motion), og «tidsforløp» (timelapse).

Astronomen Carl Sagan (1934- 1996), amerikansk astronom, kosmolog, astrofysiker, astrobiolog, forfatter og vitenskapsformidler, leser og siterer fra sin egen bok «Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space»:

«The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is no where else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand. It underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the only home we’ve ever known.»
