Carl Sagan: Man of the Cosmos

Northampton, United Kingdom

The middle to late 18th century saw a rise in scientific enquiry that fueled and was in turn aided by the industrial revolution. Freethinking stimulated human imagination that questions everything and wondered at the mysteries of the universe. Men of the calibre of those 18th century thinkers were rare in the 20th century as a more cynical and structured approach to science and thinking was promoted. There were however exceptions and one Carl Sagan was become one the century’s greatest science popularists and thinkers. Sagan became one of the most influential astronomers of the 20th century bringing a fresh approach to planetary science and in the face of much criticism questioned established theories about Venus, Mars, the formation of life and the manner in which to popularize space science. Andrew who was inspired by Carl to support space science gives a very personal view of the man and his work. The presentation is illustrated with slides, audio, video and several surprising props!
