Sagan was a good communicator. He represented the human ideals of science, in that he could communicate topics to a mass audience and make you feel the topic.

I still watch Cosmos whenver I notice it's on. Usually right before or right after another astrononmy based show....

Just look at the words he uses with that pic:

"That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every 'superstar,' every 'supreme leader,' every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."

I wonder if he really spoke like that or if he was just such a great teacher he composed himself as such to come across better.

I like to think he spoke like that off the top of his head. Such a poet. How can you not just be facinated with science?

Can't top that reply. Carl was more than a scientist. He was an artist. He took me in his imaginary spaceship of the cosmos.

I have enjoyed watching the Cosmos series on the Science Channel the last few months. As "dated" as the clothes and cars may be, the effects are actually quite good and the other posters are right, Sagan could explain things of the utmost complexity in such a simplistic manner. He had a gift and the child persona in him made it fun to learn.

Love Carl Sagan way up there on my list, heres 2 of my many favorite quotes.

We are what hydrogen does given 14 billion years

We are star stuff we are a way for the Cosmos to know itself

And how about the music or theme from Cosmos isn't that great stuff.
