Cosmos: A Personal Voyage is a thirteen-part television series written by Carl Sagan. The series is notable for its groundbreaking use of special effects, which allowed Sagan to apparently walk through environments that were actually models rather than full-sized sets. The soundtrack included pieces of music provided by Greek composer Vangelis.

Sagan was an American astronomer, astrophysicist, author, cosmologist, and highly successful popularizer of astronomy, astrophysics and other natural sciences. During his lifetime, he published more than 600 scientific papers and popular articles and was author, co-author, or editor of more than 20 books. In his works, he advocated skeptical inquiry and the scientific method. He pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI).

Sagan became world-famous for his popular science books and for the award-winning television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which he narrated and co-wrote.  Sagan also wrote the novel Contact, the basis for the 1997 film of the same name.

People who’ve changed the minds of many. Sagans legacy will live on.
