Hey guys I came across this video by one of my favorites Carl Sagan. It resonated with me so I thought I would share. there are 2 videos and it will only take 7 minutes to watch them both so please take a look if you are interested.

Very nice TVN, glad you felt compelled to share. Those vids inspired me and makes feel good about being a human on this planet, wrapped in wondrous beauty and devastating power. The tone of his voice and the presentation remind of when I used to hear a leader speak with vision and hope, making me proud to be an American and an Earthling. There is hardly any vision or inspiration from our leaders these days. Of course many are too busy pleasing constituents, corps or themselves, focusing on the now more than the future. rather that is intentional or circumstantial, I miss some of the healthy pride.
RIP Carl

Thanks for the reply spec, the thing that rang true with me was that he mentioned that we will look for other life or maybe disclose information on other life only if it will be beneficial to the people who more or less are in control.

I think that was pretty evident in the last seconds of the second video where they showed the amount of money spent of military compared to space exploration.

I know man, just when the hell did we lose our priorities? It seems though that the public lost interest over the last couple of decades, and now when determining priorities, there is too much work to be done here first I guess. I believe keeping our aspiration for growth into space should stay alive, and ya know, with all the recent discoveries maybe there is a shift of interest again from the public. Let's hope so....
Dang Military Industrial Complex! < shakes fist >
