Popular Science shows us... from space.

In the immortal words of Agent Smith, "Humanity is a virus." At least, from space, we look like an infestation.

It does kind of make my skin crawl . . . and yet, those little bug-like specks somehow developed the ability to put a camera in space so it could take their pictures as they went about their speck-ulative activities. Strange that there could be so much mind inside something so small . . . .
