Tenth of 911 on our pale blue dot

If you are not sure why ten is ever special than any of its neighboring numbers 9 and 11, there is this movie telling the power of ten.

Looking at the voyager image taken from the edge of solar system, Carl Sagan once reflected:
Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in SpaceFrom this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it's different. Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
