Carl Sagan's death is not untimely, owing to the nature of the disease he
was laboring under.  I have often conceived of death as a time when all
the unknown answers suddenly become knowns, and that issues of space and
time are resolved.  I would like to think of Carl Sagan as having his
first good look at other galaxies today.  Besides peace, we can also
believe there might be joy.  I will think of Dr. Sagan as wandering out
amongst the stars, "billions and billions" of them.

He was a great influence on all teachers of science and math who followed
his monumental book and series, "Cosmos".
