We lost Carl Sagan 16 years ago today. He has touched people’s lives, in life and in death, in ways that are difficult to put in to words. He was not only a wonderful teacher, but also someone who lit the fires of curiosity in those who learned from him. In that way, we have each been able to light our way to new knowledge, on paths of our own design.
If I am a teacher of any measure, in any form, it is because of people like Carl Sagan.
Remember him with this beautiful animated rendition of his finest ode to the cosmos, Pale Blue Dot.
I’d love to hear your thoughts and remembrances. If Carl was here today, what would you say to him?
