Going to have to revisit this article. Carl Sagan brought science and astronomy in to the mainstream in the '80s and inspired many to get involve in the sciences. He was a brilliant writer and speaker on many topics...much more than just discussing the possibility of life outside of our solar system. Brewer13210 07:26, 16 April 2007 (EDT)

I was reading his stuff in the 70s as a school kid.

I too have fond memories of the first time I watched Cosmos.
