Post subject:  Re: Astro Telly - time travelling with Carl Sagan

During the recent Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, Prof. Sophie Scott made a number of references to the 1977 lecture series presented by Carl Sagan.

I remember enjoying these at the time, and was delighted to find that they can be viewed on Vimeo, via the RIGB web-site:

These were recorded just after the Viking landings on Mars, but before either Voyager probe had reached Jupiter - so they are now a fascinating snapshot of that time, and I found it staggering to look back and consider how much we've learned in the last 40 years!
