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.
