Sincerely, Science
30 September 2013 @ 6:32 AM
I am planning on making a series of posters commemorating my favorite scientists. First in the series is Carl Sagan, the astrophysicist and science diplomat who changed the lives of many through inspiring them to pursue and understand science through his professorship, his many books and the Cosmos television series. Not only did he inspire many, he achieved many great feats in astronomy such as being a key component in the Mariner 2 mission which discovered the atmospheric conditions of Venus, hypothesizing the presence of an atmosphere on Europa (a moon of Jupiter) and Titan (a moon of Saturn,) and eventually being proven right. He also worked to create a compilation of music and sounds of Earth to be sent aboard the Voyager mission — PS: if you want to hear a great love story, listen to the NPR story featuring Ann Druyan, how she met Carl Sagan and how they fell in love.
