Carl Sagan was born on November 9, 1934. Please join us as we honor one of the greatest science educators in modern times, and celebrate the beauty and wonder of the cosmos he so eloquently described.
There will be readings from Carl Sagan's works, and we will watch one of the original episodes of the television series Cosmos while we eat. Everyone is invited to read a favorite passage from Carl Sagan's works, or say something about him.
Carl Sagan was a Professor of Astronomy and Space Science and Director of the Laboratory for Planetary Studies at Cornell University, but most of us know him as a Pulitzer Prize winning author and the creator of COSMOS. That Emmy and Peabody award-winning PBS television series transformed educational television when it first aired in 1980, but now, thirty years later, it's gone on to affect the hearts and minds of over a billion people in sixty countries.
