Carl Sagan Day

Happy Carl Sagan Day! Today is the first annual celebration of the life and work of an amazing man who really knew how to get into crazy little corners of your mind and expand it into directions that you never knew existed.
If you haven't at least read his book, Cosmos, or seen the TV series, Cosmos, well, you're just really missing an experience that everyone should have. When I first read his essays on biology, especially the parts about our mitochondria, the information really had me so intrigued that it set off a whole new passion of discovery for me. If you're a fellow human being on Planet Earth like I am (and you probably are!), you need to know this information!


  1. Watching "Cosmos", when it first ran, completely changed the way I looked at everything from then on! It was beautiful!

  2. It looks like the whole thing is on YouTube as well:

    Love the portrait Julie!

  3. I'm so glad you had the same experience I did when you saw "Cosmos", Madeline.
    Thanks for the link (and the compliment!), Jen!

  4. I don't agree with a lot of his view points,but he has some really cool views scientifically (minus diatribes on God).

    Here is a video that is really neat.You may get a kick out of it.

  5. Oh by the way.Cool sketch Julie.

  6. it's an excellent style to draw, specially this style. I think we can't ignore your talent, specially if we're trying to improve the art-work. viagra online has been increasing the culture in this main point.
