Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot -Episode 1: "Wanderers"

To the memory of Carl Sagan, who fueled my love of science, and to Explorers of every age and epoch I dedicate Lang Kasranov's fantastic documentary "Pale Blue Dot".

Journey with Carl Sagan as your guide, from humanity's wandering and nomadic antiquity to the present day. Some time before he died in 1996, Carl Sagan recorded a partial audio version of his 1994 book "Pale Blue Dot". 

Often described as the "sequel" to Cosmos, the audio version of Pale Blue Dot is, at this moment, regrettably out of print. This video is "episode one" of an unauthorized attempt at producing a series of videos based on Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot" audio book, Combining the book's narration with a soundtrack and appropriate imagery intended to recall the feel of the classic BBC and PBS documentary series such as "Ascent of Man" and "Cosmos". Please make it a point to visit Lang's official project website.
