Planetary Society - So Sorry for your loss!

Thanks to Bruce and Carl Sagan, I found myself involved in the aero space industry. Carl's ground breaking series "COSMOS" and the Planetary has inspired 10's of thousand of folks like me to embrace space exploration. I have been a member of the Planetary Society since its inception and I continue to do so today. Bruce and Carl were my heroes as a young man and I honor and respect them both to this day. MY kids are constantly complaining about my use of quotes from COSMOS in daily conversation. I had the privilege of meeting Cark as he visited the Fells Planetarium in Philadelphia. He and Dr. IM Levet were have a discussion and i recognized both. The legacy left by Bruce and Carl still continues to inspire young people. They are now together again in heaven, God bless them both.
