Topic - Carl Sagan
Carl Sagan was best known, and appropriately so, as a planetary scientist with a gift for explaining the workings of the universe to those of us who are nonscientists. In his book, "The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark," he proved he knows us very well:
Astronomer Carl Sagan become Mr. Science for a generation after his 1980 series, "Cosmos," took audiences on a groundbreaking TV journey through the universe.
It's not "billions and billions." It's more like 800 boxes worth. That is the sum total of the personal and scientific papers of one Carl Sagan, acquired Wednesday by the Library of Congress.
Almost daily there are new reports of distant planets. They may outnumber the 100 billion stars in our galaxy. What we're look- ing for, of course, is ex- traterrestrial intelligence, not just orbiting rocks. But nothing has been found. The silence in outer space "is maddening," Charles Krauthammer has written. It "makes no sense."
The Fox network is bringing back Carl Sagan's universe-spanning docu-series "Cosmos," and "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane is on board for the ride.
Each contributes something different, but "you're still with the franchise at the end of the day," he said.
Sagan was the presenter for the first series, Tyson said, and he's the presenter for the second.
