Elegance goes directly to the question of how the laws of nature are constructed. Nobody knows the answer to that. Nobody! It’s a perfectly legitimate hypothesis, in my view, to say that some extremely elegant creator made those laws. But I think if you go down that road, you must have the courage to ask the next question, which is: Where did that creator come from? And where did his, her, or its elegance come from? And if you say it was always there, then why not say that the laws of nature were always there and save a step?
—Carl Sagan, Conversations with Carl Sagan
For a long time, Cosmos has been on IMDB’s top 10 TV shows of all time. It is no wonder that appetite for understanding of deep mysteries of cosmos fascinates people. Sagan’s Cosmos has a special place in popular culture here in West, well to be honest, even in Asia, Africa and other parts of world as well. His way of delivering the state of the art to his audience has been the bold identifier of the Science Communication in US and all over the world since 1980.
Tonight, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey premiers on FOX and National Geographic. Stay tuned for the awesomeness which belongs to prime time television !
It never gets old to revisit the work of Carl Sagan ! It was an awesome animation (Above) to start ! His words are still impact-full to ears. They compel us to fine tune our attitude and send out a very simple message to alter our ego maniacal ways of approaching the conflicts around the world. Idea of ‘Living peacefully’ has become a necessary evil for us ! The idea was seen by Carl Sagan as an amicable friend to march forward with ! Sigh ….. Oh humanity !
I thank my friend for the book he sent me yesterday ! It’s an awesome read for sure !
Nos vemos amigos !!!

Our future depends powerfully on how well we understand this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky —- Carl Sagan
