Carl Sagan, Jeddak of the Cosmos
"I can remember as a child reading with breathless fascination the Mars novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs. . . . I can remember spending many an hour in my boyhood, arms resolutely outstretched in an empty field, imploring what I believed to be Mars to transport me there."
-Carl Sagan (1934-1996)
Sagan was a great science educator and a voice for reason in a world that so desperately needs it.ReplyDelete
He will be missed.
Carl Sagan rocks! I have the DVD set of Cosmos and many of his books. I remember that quote from when I was a child of 9 or so, and when I was an adult I read the book Cosmos and was thoroughly entranced, especially by that quote.ReplyDelete
I wish I'd been able to meet him...
Grew up on that guy! Cosmos was my fave read of the early 80's.ReplyDelete
Carl Sagan is a science educator. He even defended Velikovsky. Here's the Youtube link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hNje6W7NWoReplyDelete
