If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

For too many, Carl Sagan was just a running joke about "billions and billions." But the man was taken with the giant* scale of the universe. As a thinking man, he couldn't help but have that affect his philosophy.

Take three and a half minutes, and go listen to the simple, profound words of a great thinker whom we lost too early.

There is a reason he's the man I consider my personal hero.

Thank you. I didn't know he had died. Somehow, he is coupled with my view of sanity. And the Big Picture.But now I have my own, to which he contributed. Thank you for this.

He died back in 1996. He was 62.

The universe is an amazing place. A regular person will need a lot of help in appreciating just how amazing it is. Mr. Sagan was the man who helped me appreciate it.

Matt, there is a difference between Enormity (big badness), and Enormousness (big bigness).

Sagan DID do a lot to help science, especially in astrophysics- He was an interesting speaker also.
