Carl Sagan Day


“Tuesday (11/09) is Carl Sagan Day — a chance to remember the legacy of one of the great spokespersons for science. The folks over at the Kepler spacecraft website held an essay contest, inviting the public to submit writings inspired by the imagery that Sagan created in his allegory of The Shores of the Cosmic Ocean. The essays — which also include guest essays by notables such as Jill Tartar and Seth Shostak — are now available to read, and are all well worth the trip over to the Kepler website, especially if Sagan had an impact on your thought processes (as he did on mine). I hope you’ll check it out.” (Source)

For 45 minutes WSPR on 17 meter with 5 watt. As you see conditions are good for over the pond. No European stations, only DX.

  1. I watched his "Cosmos" TV series religiously. Cornell, "his" university, a nice drove from my NY QTH. After incineration, his ashes were launched into space by NASA. 73 Dick
