Unhappy Anniversary

Today is the tenth anniversary of the death of Carl Sagan. It's hard to believe it's been 10 years.

I remember Carl Sagan from TV and the exceptionally well-done series Cosmos. He had a way of explaining scientific concepts in layman's terms, without ever seeming to talk down to people. He was very engaging and animated. His books were a joy to read and I highly recommend any of them for anyone even remotely interested in science. He was, truly, one of those people who inspired others to broaden their scientific horizons. He was a man respected by his peers from all over the world.

We are diminished by his loss.
