There is no way for me to think about Carl Sagan without thinking of my father. My dad, he of the constant impersonations, loved to impersonate Carl Sagan. Particularly the way he used to say "billions and billions" and "star stuff". As kids, we found this very amusing and so we bought my dad the book, Cosmos.

Both of these men sparked in me a love and respect for science and impressed on me of the importance of independent and critical thinking.Please check out the rest of her post at Mostly Dogs.
