Ewan says that the Spirit probe took a picture of Earth from Mars.

This is one of the things that has always me feel comforted. And sad, at the same time. But yet, it fills me with hope. And despair. The realization of our insignificance, and potential. That picture contains everyone you ever knew, and everything that we ever did. But the fact that we could even take such a picture gives us hope.

The Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan. Read it.

Update: Nice article on the subject in Astrobiology Magazine.
