Excerpts were taken from Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space. More specifically, from the chapter titled Aberrations of Light. I edited together the audio from the audio-book, and added the video from:

- Carl Sagan's Cosmos
- Discovery's Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking
- BBC's Wonders of the Solar System with Brian Cox
- BBC's The Root of All Evil with Richard Dawkins
- BBC's Walking With Cavemen
- Robert Zemeckis' Contact (based on the novel by Carl Sagan sharing the same name)
- Tony Darnell's Hubble Deep Field in 3D.

The music is Together We Will Live Forever by Clint Mansell, which was recommended by YouTube user thewadsman (thanks!).
