Gifts of Carl Sagan
Since its founding in 1997, Wonderfest has been dedicated to the memory of astronomer Carl Sagan, perhaps the greatest science popularizer of the 20th century. We at Wonderfest join thousands of individuals and organizations around the world in celebrating Carl Sagan Day on November 9, 2014, the 80th anniversary of Carl’s birth.
Here is a *wonderful* 6-minute audio essay entitled “The Gifts of Carl Sagan.” It is written and spoken by Lauren Becker of the Center for Inquiry (CFI). Ms. Becker first presented it in 2006 on an episode of CFI’s “Point of Inquiry” podcast.
