Our Place in the Universe - Carl Sagan
A look at our place in the Universe. An edited version, taken from the award winning TV series "Cosmos", by American Astronomer, Carl Sagan. Here we look at our place in the Universe, and find that we are in no way, the center of our Universe, ...we are not even the center of our own galaxy, the Milky Way;....nor our own solar system. It is only a delusion, to kid ourselves that the stars rise and set for us. That we are the reason there is a Universe. I believe Carl Sagan said it best when he says "The Universe is not suppose to be in perfect harmony with human ambition." Carl Edward Sagan was an American astronomer and astrochemist and a highly successful popularizer of astronomy, astrophysics, and other natural sciences. He is world-famous for writing popular science books and for co-writing and presenting the award-winning 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which has been seen by more than 600 million people in over 60 countries, making it the most widely watched PBS program in history.
