The Quintessential Science Series

by CortxVortx on 8/11/2008

Even after 20 years and some effects updates, Carl Sagan's opus remains a wonderful introduction to the majesty of the universe and the best tool for exploring and comprehending it -- science. Sagan's poetic narrative enhances this exploration of the cosmos, from the very small to the very large; from the very slow to the very fast; from the very long ago to the present. He imparts to the laymen some of what we scientists experience -- the satisfaction of understanding, the thrill of discovery, the wonder of the unknown, and the awe of the Cosmos.
