I uploaded Carl Sagan's Cosmos because this is what the internet, at its best, is all about. But I never expected the comments I would see! It seems like every day I get comments from people talking about how special Carl was, what he meant to them, how he changed their lives, etc. Every comment brings a smile to my face. I'm very proud to say the comments to these videos have become a virtual shrine to a great man who is obviously still missed by millions.
As for me, I first watched Cosmos when I was 10 years old. It had a profound impact on me that lasts to this day. For years, I thought I should become a scientist as a result. That never worked out, and I ultimately chose a very different career path, but Carl's thinking still permeates my intellectual character: his rationality, his skepticism, his deep-felt love of humanity, and, most importantly, his enduring optimism.
Enjoy! And please keep those wonderful comments coming!
