I have posted about Carl Sagan a few times here on G Living. I never seem to get tired of looking back at his life and the knowledge he left behind. He seemed to have instinctively known the way to excite the next generation in science, exploration and knowledge, is to light up their imaginations with visuals and dramatic stories. He did just that with his Cosmos Tv series. Before CGI, before Star Wars and Battle Star Galactica, Carl created a TV series, which took us into space, not to kill fictional Klingons, but to learn about the actual universe we live within.
Yes, the graphics are a bit dated, it was filmed in the late 70′s but it still blows me away. Watch the entire series on Hulu.com for free. Posted below is the first show in the series. Open your mind and enjoy.
