25 Carl Sagan Quotes About Life, Love And The Cosmos

Carl Sagan was an American astronomer, astrophysicist, author and researcher. He was also known as “the astronomer of the people.”

When he was four, his parents took him to the 1939 New York World’s Fair. This became a turning point in his life and young Carl developed an early interest in science, space and the stars. His parents encouraged his growing interest in science by gifting him chemistry sets and books.

Carl Sagan made crucial contributions in popularizing astronomy to the public. He authored more than 20 books about space and the universe. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his work. His TV series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage still remains one of the most-watched shows in television history. I highly recommend that you watch his famous short video called Pale Blue Dot.
