What Tiger Woods did for golf, Carl Sagan did for astronomy: he made it popular with the people. His Cosmos series in 1980 – the most widely watched PBS special ever – educated, entertained, and fascinated us. He was America’s storyteller in the golden era of space exploration.

As a bonus, find out what Vladimir Putin has to do with science (11.35) and listen you will to the worst Yoda impression of all time (10.41) – done twice in fact.
