Cosmos by Carl Sagan [favorite quote: The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interior of collapsing stars. We are made of star stuff.]

We are made of Stars Carl Sagan work and interest for promoting science was a mayor influence in me, a big chunk of my love for nature, history and knowledge is thanks to growing up watching shows like Cosmos, which is an all time favourite of mine, I’ll always be thankful for the existence of people like him in this world.

The Voyager Golden Record was compiled by two people in love: the astronomer Carl Sagan, and Ann Druyan, the creative director of the project, who he would later marry. Druyan... recorded the electrical impulses of her brain and nervous system, her heartbeats... which were the sounds of a woman swept away: by a man, by ideas, by the power of sending their love out into eternity... Love, golden, close to eternal, flying at impossible speeds through the heavens.
