The Wanderers Narrated by Carl Sagan


Screen Shot 2014-11-30 at 11.47.53 PMThere are some people who’s passing create a dent in our lives, even if meeting only once.  Carl Sagan was one of those.  Erick Wernquist has created a wonderful voyage around the solar system, using a narrative from Sagan.  It is almost magical in scope, one of the reasons I am so captivated by planetary exploration.  What is so beautiful about this saga is that the visions of space, of planets to explore are based on actual bodies within our solar system.

I don’t know about you, but this is the future I want.  I want it for me, for my nieces and nephew and for my great niece and her children.  It is a legacy that guarantees the survival of humanity.  We explore the solar system and we survive as a species.  We don’t explore, and simply give way to our baser instincts and we are doomed.

It is all so beautiful.  My ultimate bucket list includes traveling to Saturn to see the rings.
