Carl Sagan was an amazing scientist that actually made an extreme effort to make science accessible to all. With his PBS series Cosmos : A Personal Voyage, Mr. Sagan embedded himself into the minds of an entire generation of kids who sat and watched with amazement in science/astronomy classes across America. The images and ideas in the series always inspired me and continue to as the series has been rebroadcast on Discovery Science Channel.
The Hubble Space Telescope has picked up where Carl Sagan left off, and has been a huge source of inspiration... the images it has captured are unbelievable. Can't wait for the James Webb Space Telescope to be launched!
