Like Dick and Barb and so many others, when I heard of Carl Sagan's death
this morning, I could only think of him as "wandering out there among the
stars" and perhaps seeing wonders we can barely imagine,

Through his series Cosmos, Carl  indeed a master storyteller took us his
audience on "electronic" fieldtrips (as much as was possible in that time
and era) to the outer edges of the universe and inspired us all with new
ways of thinking and imagining the "cosmos" around us. And his effect on us
has had a kind of a ripple effect, as we became inspired  through his words
and writings, we as teachers pass on that sense of wonder and marvel (and
gee whiz) to our students.

How  fortunate we were to have experienced first hand this remarkable man
of science.
