Originally uploaded to Google Video in July of 2007 (with very nearly 50,000 views to its credit there), "Wanderers" finally makes its official, full-length (40 minutes), full-resolution, "unmodified" debut on YouTube. A quick scan of the other videos in the righthand column reveals a good many random, lower-resolution "versions" of this video (including one version very kindly subbed in Spanish!) that have been uploaded by others over the years. Thanks to all for keeping the fire burning. With Google Video's migration to YouTube now underway, I'm pleased to finally be able to bring this old war horse back to the stable.
Some time before he died in 1996, Carl Sagan recorded a partial audio version of his 1994 book "Pale Blue Dot". Often described as the "sequel" to Cosmos, the audio version of Pale Blue Dot is, at this moment, regrettably out of print.
This video represents an "episode one" of sorts, the beginning of an unauthorized video series based on Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot" audio book, combined with a soundtrack and appropriate images intended to recall the feel of classic BBC/PBS documentary series, such as "Ascent of Man" and "Cosmos". Episode two, in production seemingly forever, is on its way.
Please visit the project website: http://kasranov.blogspot.com. Sincere thanks to all for their messages of support and encouragement regarding the next episode. A project update and additional details about Episode 2 will be released soon.
