Carl Sagan Institute Launched

What an amazing day! So many inspiring talks and personal stories at the Inauguration of the "Carl Sagan Institute: Pale Blue Dot and Beyond" - named so at the request of Ann Druyan, writer, producer and director (most known for her work on The Voyager Message, and the original and new COSMOS series), who is also Carl Sagan's widow. Ann is an inspiration. She said, if Carl was alive today, this is what he would want to do, this is where he would want to be.

So moving.

- Lisa Kaltenegger, director
