I'm pretty stoked on space and the universe right now, and I love how these videos put a perspective on things.
I would loved to have met this guy. Listen to his voice, I can just tell he was a major pimp. These videos of "The Sagan Series" seem to be mostly footage from the HOME project (which I have posted on here multiple times, and everyone should take the time to watch - it's incredible.) that is narrated by some of Carl's old readings.
Once again, I encourage everybody who may be reading this to invest the time to watch HOME - it has some of the most amazing and stunning cinematography I've ever seen, and conveys what I think is an important message.

"Internationally renowned photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand makes his feature directorial debut with this environmentally conscious documentary produced by Luc Besson, and narrated by Glenn Close. Shot in 54 countries and 120 locations over 217 days, Home presents the many wonders of planet Earth from an entirely aerial perspective. As such, we are afforded the unique opportunity to witness our changing environment from an entirely new vantage point. In our 200,000 years on Earth, humanity has hopelessly upset Mother Nature's delicate balance. Some experts claim that we have less than ten years to change our patterns of consumption and reverse the trend before the damage is irreversible. Produced to inspire action and encourage thoughtful debate, Home poses the prospect that unless we act quickly, we risk losing the only home we may ever have."
Watch it full screen in HD if you want to be blown away.
seriously, WATCH IT!
