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.

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.
