The reason I posted this here is because Carl Segan expanded the ideas of life elsewhere, which relates to Aliens. He never feared to speculate, and
that speculation never exceeded the possible. Sagan promoted planetary astronomy and the search for intelligent life, which led to his becoming one of
the most famous scientists of his time through tv and his writings. He opened the imagination of everyone who has seen him, and is undoubtedly one of
the greatest minds of the 20th century. I'm sure everyone can agree on that. After his death, he left behind a legacy of knowledge that should never
I'm sure most of you have seen Cosmos. For those who haven't you can watch the entire thing here. Its extremely long spanning several episodes (each
being an hour or so long), so you might want to take your time with it.
The order is as follows.
1. The Shores of the Cosmic Ocean
2. One Voice in the Cosmic Fugue (This is my personal favorite)
3. The Harmony of the Worlds
4. Heaven and Hell
5. Blues for a Red Planet
6. Travelers' Tales
7. The Backbone of Night
8. Travels in Space and Time
9. The Lives of the Stars
10. The Edge of Forever
11. The Persistence of Memory
12. Encyclopedia Galactica
13. Who Speaks for Earth?
I think that this is something that any ATS user can appreciate, and odds are already appreciate (for those not familiar with Segan's work, I hope
you enjoy it). I would like to devote this thread to the great works of Carl Sagan, and hope that everyone has something to say.
