Happy Birthday Carl Sagan
Thu, 10 Nov 2011
Over the years I’ve accumulated heroes; people I look up to and admire both for their work and their conviction to what they believed in and worked for. Foremost of these for me w0uld be Carl Sagan whose visionary belief, not just in science, but in mankind itself, gave voice to the historical achievement of humans as a species and a beautiful, reconnecting position for all of us to take on this planet and amongst the stars.
Today (or rather, yesterday… time zones and relativity and what not aside) marks what would have been his 77th birthday; and his wisdom, insight and love is still missed.
