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.

- My first introduction to Carl Sagan came in 1980 when Cosmos first aired on PBS. Both informative and inspirational, it made some long lasting impressions on me. Brewer13210 09:19, 16 April 2007 (EDT)
- Billions and billions ... it's enough to curdle your milk. Hey, remember when Carl Sagan debated Fred Singer about the Kuwaiti oil fires being like nuclear winter? Singer treated Sagan's dire prediction as a hypothesis and said let's wait a week and see if it's correct. It turned out Sagan's hypothesis was wrong. --Ed Poor Talk 21:23, 3 December 2008 (EST)
On the line referencing Sagan's "gullible fans" and "pseudoscience fantasies", this seems simply too slanderous to count as an informative statement that deserves a spot in an encyclopedia. I'd vote for removing this line. Any objections?
- Yes and you did not show the comments were slanderous. I did add material as well. conservative 04:30, 10 September 2010 (EDT)
