I just wanted to let you in on a secret. The secret of the future. Yes, that's right, the future: The next 365 days of life in this beautiful pale blue dot are in this video.

Yes, yes, the time lapse is from 2009, but no matter how many wars, natural disasters, sickness, elections, scandals and iPhone 5s get unveiled in 2011, this is what the world will be at, impervious to our stupidity and discoveries and glories and miseries and happiness and sadness and hate and love and cocktails and disco dances, spinning at 66,611 miles per hour around the Sun as it has been spinning for the last 4.5 billion years.
