It’s the anniversary of the birth of Carl Sagan  (1934- 1996), the American astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, author, science popularizer, and science Carl Sagan 2communicator in astronomy and other natural sciences.  He is perhaps best known for presenting the TV series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which has been described as “a watershed moment for science-themed television programming”.
