NOTE FROM JEFF: I got to meet Carl Sagan at the Goldstone deep-space radio-telescope installation in southern California on Columbus Day October 12 1992. I had been invited there by my friends at the SETI group at the NASA Ames facility in Silicon Valley. I got to talk with him for five minutes. This photo shows me with Dr. Fiorella Terenzi, Italian astrophysicist who released recordings of sounds made by colliding radio galaxies. We had lunch a few weeks later and she had to leave so she could go and catch up with Alan Parsons. :)
'WHO SPEAKS FOR EARTH?' CARL SAGAN'S 'COSMOS' EPISODE 13
"COSMOS", Carl Sagan's excellent tv series can now be watched episode by episode on youtube..."Who Speaks for Earth?" summarizes the current human situation: will we destroy ourselves through the abuse of our most advanced technologies? Sagan thought "nuclear war" would do us in but failed to recognize "radiological warfare" in the form of DU...and since this was produced in the 1980's, no mention of genetic engineering, nano-technology...or microwaves. In fact, radio and microwaves (almost the same thing) are the preferred modi communicandi for radio-astronomers who hope to hear from 'intelligent life.' "
PS Sagan thinks that we're 'alone' on Earth somehow, because all other 'intelligent' life-forms destroyed themselves with their advanced technologies...how blind of him not to see the innate 'intelligence' in EVERY OTHER FORM OF LIFE ON MOTHER EARTH who is NOT destroying themselves or her.
