Dr. Carl Sagan was born on November 9, 1934. 78 years later--and 16 years after his untimely death--he remains one of the most famous scientists of all time, and possibly the greatest popularizer of science ever. Of course, he was also one of the three founders of the Planetary Society, so it shouldn't surprise anyone that we'd want to celebrate him. Tickets for our little party, hosted for us by Southern California Public Radio, were gone in record time. And we didn't have any problem getting several terrific people to accept our invitation to talk about their former colleague.
I think it's safe to say that for those of us who grew up watching Cosmos, he will always have a special place in our hearts.

8. The Demon-Haunted World
I should read it again, now that I know more about where the belief in angels and demons comes from. We need more Carl Sagans in this world.
