Ten years ago today astronomer and science popularizer Carl Sagan shuffled off this mortal coil. Chris over at Dorkland is reporting a Cornell-led blog-a-thon in the man's honor. Let me tell you just a little anecdote to relate how much of an impression Sagan made upon me. I saw his Cosmos series during the original 1980 broadcast. I was seven years old at the time. Over ten years later I held a copy of the book version of Cosmos in my hand for my senior year high school yearbook photo. That is a fact, Jack.
