“And after the earth dies, some 5 billion years from now, after it’s burned to a crisp, or even swallowed by the Sun, there will be other worlds and stars and galaxies coming into being – and they will know nothing of a place once called Earth.”

— Carl Sagan (via ufo-the-truth-is-out-there.tumblr.com)

amnhnyc: Happy birthday to Carl Sagan! The American astronomer, astrophysicist, and author (among other things) helped explain space to the general public through hundreds of articles, dozens of books, and his popular public television series “Cosmos” — watched by more than 500 million people in 60 countries. He also researched extraterrestrial life and assembled the first physical message sent into space. Sagan helped solve mysteries of the universe, including the greenhouse effect on Venus that explains that planet’s high temperatures. In 1980 he wrote, “Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.”

Many adults are put off when youngsters pose scientific questions. Children ask why the sun is yellow, or what a dream is, or how deep you can dig a hole, or when is the world’s birthday, or why we have toes. Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before a five-year-old, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that you don’t know? Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys many adults. A few more experiences like this, and another child has been lost to science. There are many better responses. If we have an idea of the answer, we could try to explain. If we don’t, we could go to the encyclopedia or the library. Or we might say to the child: ‘I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out.’
— Carl Sagan (via Reckon)
