Happy Carl Sagan Day!

If you are my age (or older) and have an inordinate fondness for the scientific arts, you probably have Carl Sagan to thank for that*.

If you think of yourself as a “science communicator”, you have Carl Sagan to thank for breaking ground on making that a respectable pursuit for scientists.

Today was Carl’s birthday, which seems like a good location in the space-time continuum to celebrate that he existed. You should also sing along to Dr. SETI‘s Carl Sagan themed drinking song, “Cosmic Carl”.

*Younger folk probably want to thank Bill Nye or Neil deGrasse Tyson, but they have to thank Carl Sagan for inspiring them. So, you are only one step removed.
