Carl Sagan Remembered

[Today]( is a day for remembering a great man who pushed the scientific community and at root was very much a humanist, [Carl Sagan](

Who that remembers, doesn’t have a chill of thinking about the Voyager golden record? Or as a child was privy to watch and maybe read [Cosmos]( For me Sagan spurred my imagination and gave me hope for futures yet untold. He knew how to communicate and how to draw out those passions in those around him. Participating in fields from genetics to astronomy he connected it all. I found, and still find his work to be fascinating.

So here’s to you Carl! May the enthusiasm you held find root in everyone who searches.
