SETI public: The Universe and Carl Sagan in Skeptical Inquirer for Nov.-Dec., 1999

The Universe and Carl Sagan (not online - here is the abstract)
Few people ever extolled the wonders of science with more eloquence 
or were as effective in defending reason and campaigning against 
pseudoscience as Carl Sagan. 

A polymath prodigy and visionary interdisciplinary scientist with 
lifelong passions for planetary astronomy, the origins of life, and 
seeking extraterrestrial intelligence, Sagan turned his early 
enthusiasms about UFOs to rigorous but open-minded skepticism. 

An excerpt from a new biography, Carl Sagan: A Life, by Keay Davidson.
