Remembering Carl Sagan

“The cosmos is all there is, all there ever was,
and all there ever will be”
. Carl Sagan-Cosmos, 1980.

This article is dedicated to the memory of Carl Sagan.
November 9th, 1934 – December 20th, 1996

Today on Discovery Enterprise we commemorate the memory of Carl Sagan who died an untimely death twelve years ago today. Sagan was an astronomer, astrochemist, author, and highly successful popularizer of astronomy, astrophysics and other natural sciences. He pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI). For me personally he will always be remembered and revered as a great teacher who communicated the joys and transcendence of scientific discovery. Carl Sagan’s enduring legacy will always be linked to his ability to convey the wonders of science to the general public and his skill to inspiring the next generation of scientists. Carl Sagan’s name will also be forever linked to the greatest science television series in history – Cosmos. Cosmos has been seen by more than 600 million people in over 60 countries.

In order to honour this great teacher we are offering a Cosmos marathon. Today you can view the entire thirteen episodes of this landmark television series along with a two part A&E biography special about Carl Sagan.
