Carl Edward Sagan (9 November 1934 – 20 December 1996) was an American astronomer and popular science writer. There is a place with four suns in the sky - red, white, blue, and yellow; two of them are so close together that they touch, and star-stuff flows between them. I know of a world with a million moons. There are atomic nuclei a few miles across which rotate thirty times a second.

Carl Edward Sagan (born November 9, 1934, Brooklyn, New York, USA – died December 20, 1996, Seattle, Washington, USA) was an American astronomer, astrochemist, author, and highly successful popularizer of astronomy, astrophysics and other natural sciences. He is world-famous for writing popular science books and for co-writing and presenting the award-winning 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which has been seen by more than 500 million people in over 60 countries  .

Sagan has attempted to correct this balance in his best-selling books and frequent appearances on television talk shows, but Cosmos has been his most ambitious and sustained undertaking to date. If we destroy ourselves, it may be a minor tragedy for life on the planet, but it’s certainly a major tragedy for us. So we have to foresee the mistakes and avoid them.

Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space. tags: earth, perspective, space. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The items were selected for NASA by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan of Cornell University. After NASA had received criticism over the nudity on the Pioneer plaque (line drawings of a naked man and woman), the agency chose not to allow Sagan and his colleagues to include a photograph of a nude man and woman on the record Here is an excerpt of President Carter's official statement placed on the Voyager spacecraft for its trip outside the Solar System, June 16, 1977: We cast this message into the cosmos. Salvete quicumque estis; bonam erga vos voluntatem habemus, et pacem per astra ferimus. Greetings to you, whoever you are; we have good will towards you and bring peace across space.

Did Carl Sagan really warn about a time in the future when manufacturing jobs would slip away, when the average person would have virtually no control over their political lives, and when we would all cling to superstitions? Yes, Sagan did predict just that. The screenshot you may have seen floating around social media is real. And plenty of people are worried that Carl was talking about our era.

Back in 1995, everyone’s favourite astrophysicist, Carl Sagan, published a book called The Demon-Haunted World, which warned against the dangers of pseudoscience and scientific illiteracy, and encouraged its readers to learn critical and skeptical thinking. Pretty standard stuff for a socially conscious scientist, but one passage in particular has been blowing up on Twitter this week, and it’s not hard to see why. Somehow, (we’re not saying time machine, but probably time machine) Sagan managed to predict the state of things as they are today - and it’s unnervingly accurate.

Notes

This address was given at the University of Santa Cruz. Shortly after, Dr. Sagan was arrested at the Nevada Nuclear Test Site. He was participating in an act of non-violent civil disobedience to protest continued U.S. nuclear testing in the face of a unilateral Soviet moratorium. -- description from the cassette
