I think this is rather lovely, but above all it reminds me what a gloriously lyrical turn of phrase Carl Sagan had, a man with true sensawunda.




'Nuff said.

I remember watching Cosmos with my mouth hanging open. Sagan was an extraordinary communicator of very difficult concepts and he did it with the voice of a poet.

It didn't hurt that he was incredibly bright, brilliant on television, and insanely good-looking, of course.

He certainly is. There really isn't anyone comparable at the moment. Brian Greene, Brian Cox and Michio Kaku all do similar things, and I suppose of all of them Kaku comes closest to Sagan, but none of them have that wide-eyed lyricism he had.
