This album is not simply about Space; it is also a celebration of the men and women who have shown us the Universe as it truly is.

"It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."

- Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994

"...a flawless vintage sound that unwind at a leisurely pace, bringing to mind Tangerine Dream's more accessible late seventies outings, with just a touch of Jean Michel Jarre's melodic sensibilities."
