Love Carl Sagan. Even though not born when he made Cosmos and when it first aired, i went and bought it off Amazon about 4 years ago. What a Documentary series. I wish Carl would've been alive to do the second Cosmos series done by the excellent Neil De-Grasse Tyson. But Carl was something one special. 'the pale blue Dot' phrase and book has gone down in history.

L.A.T.1961

The pale blue dot image was taken by the Voyager 1 spacecraft. There was an excellent documentary on the two Voyager's shown recently on BBC4. If you would like to watch here's the link -

Storyville - The Farthest: Voyager's Interstellar Journey.

Sagan inspired Tyson to become a scientist, after he visited him as a child. He is truly Sagan's legacy.

yeah, i've heard him say that in a interview, Also Prof Brian Cox is another, and his series 'wonders of the solar system', 'wonders of life' and 'wonders of the Universe' are good.
