Meet the Author

Carl Sagan was the David Duncan Professor of Astronomy and Space Sciences and Director of the Laboratory for Planetary Studies at Cornell University; Distinguished Visiting Scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology; and the cofounder and President of the Planetary Society, the largest space-interest group in the world. For the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, he was an adviser on the Mariner, Voyager, and Viking unmanned space missions, and he briefed astronauts for journeys to the moon. His Peabody Award-winning public television series, Cosmos, has been seen by more than 500 million people in over sixty countries, and the accompanying book spent seventy weeks on The New York Times bestseller list. The author of thirty books, Sagan was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for The Dragons of Eden: Speculations on the Evolution of Human Intelligence in 1978, and his novel Contact, is now a major motion picture.

In their posthumous award to Dr. Sagan of their highest honor, the National Science Foundation declared that his research transformed planetary science ... his gifts to mankind were infinite.

    No Cosmos shown here

    Where are the 250 full color phptographs? The ebook version contains no photos at all. B&N does not warn you of this omission.

    Carl Sagan is amazing.

    Cosmos is the book that makes clear exactly how utterly insignifigant yet wonderful and priveleged you are.

    Amazing!!

    This book gave me an appreciation for science that I had never had before. It opened my eyes and made me see the world in a whole new light. I do not have the nook version. I have the old paper back I got when I was 12 but I cannot see how that could have changed what this book has meant to me. There is nothing like reading a book and feeling like those words were meant just for you.
