Celebrate Carl Sagan Day with the Planetary Society- NO HOST MEETUP

  • Nov 9, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

** UPDATE: Tickets are no longer available for the tribute. You are still able to attend the afterparty**

The Planetary Society will host a special event to honor Carl Sagan's legacy and accomplishments on what would have been his 78th birthday.

It’s at KPCC's Crawford Family Forum in Pasadena, and it’s free with RSVP.

The event will feature:

- Talk by long-time friends of Sagan's : Caltech astrophysicist Kip Thorne & Planetary Society Executive Director, Emeritus, Louis Friedman.

-Representing Dr. Sagan’s scientific legacy will be a panel of young scientists who, though his writing, he inspired to pursue their careers.

-Chas Beichman, the executive director of NExScI, which manages the Carl Sagan Fellowship program that funds exciting exoplanet research.

-Clips from Cosmos and other notable videos will be featured on the big screen.

After the main event, the group will go to the nearby Mijares restaurant for conversation and an open-mic "Sagan Slam," where people are invited to read a favorite passage from Sagan’s works or speak about how Sagan influenced you.

It will be a wonderful celebration of the finest and most inspiring science communicator of the 20th century. We hope you can join us.
