DYNAMIC INDIVIDUAL: Carl Sagan

DYNAMIC INDIVIDUAL: Carl Sagan

“We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with if for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.”

– CARL SAGAN –

Astronomer, Astrophysicist,

Educator, Author

Astronomer Carl Sagan, inspired by the Edgar Rice Burroughs Dynamic Individual: Carl Sagannovels about John Carter of Mars during his childhood, is the subject of the March 2014 Smithsonian magazine article entitled, Star Power. He is renowned for his PBS series “COSMOS: A Personal Voyage”. Seth Mac Farlane (creator of TV’s ‘Family Guy’) and Ann Druyan (Sagan’s Widow) have revived  and reinvented the ‘COSMOS’ series, aired by FOX on Sundays, because current fact based channels presenting scientific discussions are mere “fluff”. Also, the Library of Congress is now in possession of the Sagan archive which arrived in 798 boxes (The Seth MacFarlande Collection of the Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan Archive). After 17 months of curatorial preparation the archive became available to researchers in November 2013.
