Carl Sagan

I stumbled this video a week or two again and it prompted me to find out more about its strange and passionate presenter.

In 1980 Nasa Scientist Sagan made a 13 hour TV series documenting the history of the Cosmos and man's fascination with it. He did so in the shadow of cold-war nuclear annihalation and to remind us we are the product of 450 billion years of evolution and our energies would be best spent on exploring our universe rather than on destroying ourselves.

I've watched 10 hours of Cosmos so far and wish there was more.
