Carl Sagan - A Cosmic Celebrity

Today on Far Future Horizons we commemorate the eighty-third birthday of Carl Sagan and are proud to present a biographical documentary concerning his life.

Carl Sagan was the rarest of all creatures - the celebrity scientist. While some accused him of being a grandstander, none can deny that his approach to science helped introduce millions of people to the great wonders of the universe that fascinated him all his life.

He played many different roles - professor, working scientist, bestselling author and TV personality. In his classic television series Cosmos, he brought science to the masses in an accessible, entertaining format.
