Carl Sagan's Message To Mars of the Day

Favorite

In 1996, just months before he died, astronomer/astrophysicist/author Carl Sagan recorded this message to future colonists living on Mars.

Very interesting to hear 16 years later, in the light of Curiosity's landing, and cuts jeopardizing our national space programs.

Hopefully a few politicians are listening to his words of wisdom.
