I read these yesterday - awsome stuff. Was it here I found the space.com link?
I got the Cosmos DVD box set for my birthday...it's 20 years old but it's still fascinating. If more people like Carl Sagan were given a mic, the world be a better place. He had all the "brainy" scientific knowledge - the kind of vast knowledge that seems to find the connections in viewing history and the universe on a grand scale - and was always able to project a sense of wonder at it all.
Space is cool. I need to learn more.
