Carl Sagan – An Appeal for Enlightenment

November 10th, 2014 by Art  Assignment Universe  Inspirational  Space

“Science, I maintain, is an absolutely essential tool for any society with a hope of surviving well into the next century with its fundamental values intact – not just science as engaged in by its practitioners, but science understood and embraced by the entire human community. And if science will not bring this about, who will?” – Carl Sagan (The Demon-Haunted World)

Gene Kranz – Mission Control: Tough and Competent

July 21st, 2014 by Art  Assignment Universe  Film  Inspirational  Space

I would like to find some way to sufficiently challenge a new generation of people. To get them out of the “I” mode into the “we” mode. To make them want to do something rather than be something. I would like to give young people the same dream that we had. – Gene Kranz (1999)

Carl Sagan – The Dragons of Eden (Retrospective)

June 30th, 2014 by Art  Assignment Universe  Inspirational

“The universe is intricate and elegant. We wrest secrets from nature by the most unlikely routes…Without funding basic research, without supporting the acquisition of knowledge for its own sake, our options become dangerously limited. Without…scientific research, we are in the position of eating our seed corn: we may fend off starvation for one more winter, but we have removed the last hope of surviving the following winter.” – Carl Sagan

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey – Unafraid of the Dark

June 29th, 2014 by Art  Assignment Universe  Film  Inspirational  Space

“It’s ok to not know all the answers. It’s better to admit our ignorance than to believe answers that might be wrong. Pretending to know everything closes the door to finding out what’s really there.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson

I was wondering when the humor of Seth MacFarlane would find its way into COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey. A refined sense of humor, that guy has.
