I'm almost done with Contact. What a fantastic book.

Yes it is, much better than the movie (which wasn't bad either).

It really sucks that Sagan died so young. He would have been so happy to hear about the discovery of exoplanets.

Actually he was still alive to hear about the first exoplanet discoveries.

A new art display paying homage to Carl Sagan called "Cosmos" has been unveiled at Cornell University (where Carl used to work). It uses 12 000 LEDs to create an ever-changing image.

I have read two of Sagan's books--Billions and Billions and The Dragons of Eden--and I will gladly recognize his legacy: Inspiring the many generations after him to pursue the stars, certainly a deed aided by his work, is a feat I can certainly appreciate.
