An Inspiring Quote for Today...

 To honor my friend Meghan Marohn, an admirer of Carl Sagan:

Few scientists of the past half-century are as popular as Carl Sagan

As an astronomer and planetary scientist, he’s perhaps best known for his research on extraterrestrial life. He also penned a number of popular science books, such as 1994’s Pale Blue Dot; co-wrote and narrated the hit television series Cosmos; and wrote the 1985 sci-fi novel Contact

Sagan was a passionate advocate of skeptical inquiry and the scientific method but argued that critical thinking must go hand-in-hand with kindness. While we may strongly disagree with people who do not share our beliefs, we must not fall into the trap of self-righteousness, because none of us is perfect, and “none of us comes fully equipped.”
