• Remembering Carl Sagan

    Alex Michael Bonnici at The Discovery Enterprise writes:

    Today on Discovery Enterprise we commemorate the memory of Carl Sagan who died an untimely death thirteen years ago today. Carl Sagan, was an astronomer, astrochemist, author, and highly successful popularizer of astronomy, astrophysics and other natural sciences. He pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI). For me personally he will always be remembered and revered as a great teacher who communicated the joys and transcendence of scientific discovery. Carl Sagan’s enduring legacy will always be linked to his ability to convey the wonders of science to the general public and his skill in inspiring the next generation of scientists. Carl Sagan’s name will also be forever linked to the greatest science television series in history – Cosmos.

    As a ten-year-old boy flat on my stomach, head propped up in my hands, watching “Cosmos” on television, Carl Sagan showed me “the joy of figuring things out.” I learned that there is just as much adventure in the real-life dramas of sending robotic probes to new worlds (well, new to us, anyway) and that […]

  • Celebrating Indeed.

    Ever since I picked up the Cosmos book from my parents’ bookshelf at a young age, Astronomy has been a passion of mine (I almost studied Astrophysics after reading Sagan led me to Hawking, before opting for CompSci). The book absolutely fascinated me. As I got older and continued to read the book, my world […]
