Have you ever heard of the amazing and inspirational Carl Sagan?
Carl Sagan was an American astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, author and science communicator. Why inspirational? Well, there are many intelligent beings in the world but not all of them are capable of communicating and appealing to the people like Carl Sagan did. Carl Sagan did this through his books and various media (The Cosmos being especially popular).
Why bring him up now?
Well, today, along with many other humans, Carl Sagan was born 78 years ago on November 9th 1934. So happy Carl Sagan Day!
