The Sagan Series Chapter 3: A Reassuring FableJanuary 6th, 2014
It goes without saying that Carl Sagan was an inspirational figure for the past generation and was best known for making the wonders of the universe accessible, understandable, and interesting to non-scientists. Reid Gower’s The Sagan Series is a profound series of videos in which Gower simply sets Sagan’s words to imagery from the Earth and space with the goal of promoting scientific literacy in the general population. Breathtaking cinematography and a mesmerizing soundtrack lends a powerful scenery to Sagan’s narration from his hit TV series, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.
We’ve previously shared Part 1 and Part 2 of the series. The Sagan Series Chapter 3: A Reassuring Fable is embedded above, which Sagan considers our frame of reference as we look at the broader universe. We like to share the chapters on MightyMega on occasion, but the remaining chapters are available on the Sagan Series website at any time along with Gower’s TEdx talk, Defining the Frontier.
