#Friday56 & #BookBeginnings: Cosmos


Our Cosmos is all that is or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us -- there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We all know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries. - p. 1

For Friday 56:
Things had been falling down since the beginning of time.
p. 56

Synopsis of Cosmos by Carl Sagan*: The best-selling science book ever published in the English language, COSMOS is a magnificent overview of the past, present, and future of science. Brilliant and provocative, it traces today's knowledge and scientific methods to their historical roots, blending science and philosophy in a wholly energetic and irresistible way.

Life has been happening so things haven't been as busy on the blog. I have an old, old book that everyone should read. If you're intimidated by science, I highly recommend reading Carl Sagan's accessible scientific writing. Besides, I'm pretty sure everyone has a secret fascination for the world and the universe at large. 

Have you read this classic?
