The late scientist Carl Sagan cast his gaze over the grand wonder of the Universe in Cosmos, making it accessible to millions of people worldwide. Carl Sagan's revolutionary voyage across space and time is now complete in this breathtaking sequel.
Future generations will remember our era as the point at which the human race finally crossed into a radically new frontier—space. In Pale Blue Dot, Sagan chronicles the enthralling history of our entry into the cosmos and analyses the future that awaits us as we expand beyond our solar system and into distant galaxies beyond. Exploration and ultimate settlement of other worlds, says Sagan, is not a dream nor a luxury, but rather a fundamental prerequisite for the survival of the human species.
I love space. Some nights I will just stargaze for hours. It helps me answers questions, and it gives me inspiration. This book just reminded me to stargaze more.
Carl Sagan needs little to no introduction, as he has inspired a generation of scientists, stargazers, and everyday people with his popular books and the show, “Cosmos”. Out of all his books, Pale Blue Dot stands out the most for me. It is worth noting that this book contains one of the most famous passages while referencing a picture of Earth from the edge of Solar System.
Sagan makes you wonder, and that is truly valuable. If you want to learn more about space, about the worlds outside of our planet, grab a copy, you will not regret it!
