For some, Sagan’s Cosmos was the first magnificent glance into science. It was for me, at least, and those evenings going through Sagan’s VHS determined much of my professional career from then on. For others, discoveries came later through his books, articles, and movies (Sagan wrote the novel-turned-movie “Contact”, starring Jodie Foster). No matter how you first came across Carl Sagan, chances are he probably still holds a special place in your heart. To celebrate my favorite astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, author, and science communicator, I have decided to created a list with some ideas. So, without further ado, these are what I consider the best Carl Sagan gifts and why.
