Today at precisely 21:27 GMT we’re all going to be shot from space! Nothing to fear, however. This Cassini spacecraft will take a picture of Earth from its vantage point in the vicinity of Saturn this evening. A historical event indeed. We all know of the iconic pale blue dot image of the Earth – see my previous blog Explore. We’ll get a chance to snap another picture of our planet in true colour.
