Reason #13: Pale Blue Dots

I give you Earth and the moon from 6 million miles away, courtesy the Juno spacecraft. Juno launched for Jupiter about a month ago, and to give you an idea of how far away Jupiter is - it's travelled 6 million miles already, and it won't get there until July 2016.

Juno cost about $1 billion - otherwise known as one week in Afghanistan.
