Carl Sagan was one of the first Miller Fellows at UC Berkeley back in 1960. The program is designed to help young visionaries launch their careers in research.
The GIFS above are from an animated version of Carl Sagan’s famed ‘Pale Blue Dot’ monologue.

Happy birthday Carl. We miss you, but you live on in your words and our minds.
