CARL SAGAN ~ BRILLIANT SCIENTIST: from his book 'COSMOS': "We are all made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself!" Today, Carl Sagan would be 83 years old; and in losing him, the planet has had a deep loss. However, he also was a brilliant communicator, so we are highly fortunate still to have his knowledge expressed through his writings. (Pay attention to them, everyone: this planet Earth, and our literally-VITAL OCEANS, are our only home ~ we must do everything possible to protect them ~ there is no alternative-home!) ♥️⭐️🌎🌍🌏💫 BTW: Carl Sagan wrote the book "CONTACT" ~ the film🎥"CONTACT", made of that book, starring Jodie Foster, is my absolute favourite 📽 movie of All Time❣️📽♥️

Publicado pela primeira vez em 1980, o livro reúne alguns dos conhecimentos mais avançados da época sobre a natureza, a vida e o Universo – e se mantém até hoje como uma das mais importantes obras de divulgação científica da história. Embora diversas descobertas tenham acontecido ao longo dos últimos quarenta anos, o tema centra deste livro nunca estará desatualizado: o fascínio pelo conhecimento e a prática da ciência como atividade cultural.

Today, we're honoring the late #CarlSagan—who would have been 83 today. We can't think of anyone who inspired so many people to love science and the universe. For our September 1972 issue, we sat down for an interview with Carl Sagan about our rusty neighbor, Mars. And the man who reminded us we are all made of starstuff, dissected some of Mars' mysteries in his trademark educational and awe-inspiring way. If only Professor Sagan could see what we're doing on Mars now! Click the link below our profile to read that interview in its entirety. #CarlSaganDay #PopSciTBT {📸 @pbs}

Repost from @i.humanist
💖 Carl Edward Sagan (November 9, 1934 – December 20, 1996) He is best known for his work as a science popularizer and communicator. His best known scientific contribution is research on extraterrestrial life, including experimental demonstration of the production of amino acids from basic chemicals by radiation. Sagan assembled the first physical messages sent into space: the Pioneer plaque and the Voyager Golden Record, universal messages that could potentially be understood by any extraterrestrial intelligence that might find them. Sagan argued the now accepted hypothesis that the high surface temperatures of Venus can be attributed to and calculated using the greenhouse effect.
Sagan published more than 600 scientific papers and articles and was author, co-author or editor of more than 20 books. He wrote many popular science books, such as The Dragons of Eden, Broca's Brain and Pale Blue Dot, and narrated and co-wrote the award-winning 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. The most widely watched series in the history of American public television, Cosmos has been seen by at least 500 million people across 60 different countries.The book Cosmos was published to accompany the series. He also wrote the science fiction novel Contact, the basis for a 1997 film of the same name. His papers, containing 595,000 items, are archived at The Library of Congress. Sagan advocated scientific skeptical inquiry and the scientific method, pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI). He spent most of his career as a professor of astronomy at Cornell University, where he directed the Laboratory for Planetary Studies. Sagan and his works received numerous awards and honors, including the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, the National Academy of Sciences Public Welfare Medal, the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction for his book The Dragons of Eden, and, regarding Cosmos and more. 💖

Would finding another blue planet look something like this?
What would it look like to go hiking on an alien homeland?
What if our insane is their sane?
What if our definition of what life means is limited to us?
What if it does not necessarily extend its meaning into the interstellar?
What if this plane existed in a different dimension of time?

As humans we've always been curious explorers.
Seeing the gorgeous blanket above head change from day through the nights charged us with a spark.
A spark that demanded we wander into the outer space and conquer the cosmos.💫 #happy #late #carlsaganday 💫 #space #outerspace #science #sciencefiction #cosmos #interstellar #alien #world #blue #wanderer #explorers #musings #latenight #thoughts #curiosity #differentdimension #sleepynotsleepy #short #writeup #instagram #instawrite #instawriters #instagood #instainspired #peace #peaceofmind #love 💖

Esse minúsculo ponto aí somos nós, fotografia feita pela sonda Voyager em fevereiro de 1990 quando estava a 6 bilhões de km da Terra. #CarlSaganDay “Olhem de novo esse ponto. É aqui, é a nossa casa, somos nós. Nele, todos a quem ama, todos a quem conhece, qualquer um sobre quem você ouviu falar, cada ser humano que já existiu, viveram as suas vidas. O conjunto da nossa alegria e nosso sofrimento, milhares de religiões, ideologias e doutrinas econômicas confiantes, cada caçador e coletor, cada herói e covarde, cada criador e destruidor da civilização, cada rei e camponês, cada jovem casal de namorados, cada mãe e pai, criança cheia de esperança, inventor e explorador, cada professor de ética, cada político corrupto, cada "superestrela", cada "líder supremo", cada santo e pecador na história da nossa espécie viveu ali - em um grão de pó suspenso num raio de sol. [...] Já foi dito que astronomia é uma experiência de humildade e criadora de caráter. Não há, talvez, melhor demonstração da tola presunção humana do que esta imagem distante do nosso minúsculo mundo. Para mim, destaca a nossa responsabilidade de sermos mais amáveis uns com os outros, e para preservarmos e protegermos o "pálido ponto azul", o único lar que conhecemos até hoje.”
—Carl Sagan

@Regranned from @nasagoddard - No matter where you are in the solar system, our Pale Blue Dot takes your breath away. This #CarlSaganDay, we'd like to share these humbling views of Earth from near and far: from here at home, the Moon, Mars, Saturn and beyond.

"There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known." - Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994

09 de novembro - Dia de Carl Sagan
Um dia para ter bilhões e bilhões de motivos para contemplar o cosmos. Um dia para relembrar que somos feitos de poeira das estrelas, que vivemos em um minúsculo ponto pálido azul na vastidão do espaço. #CarlSaganDay

Planetariums will always be my favourite spot to chill. So grounding to be reminded of how ridiculously small we are in the larger scheme of things...
