What got me started was the Carl Sagan, Cosmos TV series. I then bought all his books, then bought everyone else's boooks,then subscribed to weekly and monthly science magazines and journals,and now I'm a science junkie. I cannot learn enough. My highpoint was crashing a Carl Sagan reception following his presentation at West Chester University in Pennsylvania. I got to speak with him and get his autograph on my copy of Cosmos. That was over 20 years ago.
