              In 1977, two extraordinary spacecraft called Voyager were launched to the stars. Affixed to each Voyager craft was a gold-coated copped phonograph record as a message to possible extra-terrestrial civilisations that might encounter the spacecraft in some distant space and time. E...ach record contained 118 photographs of our planet; almost 90 minutes of the world's greatest music; an evolutionary audio essay on 'The Sounds of Earth'; and greetings in almost sixty human languages (and one whale language). This book is an account, written by those chiefly responsible for the contents of the Voyager Record, of why they did it, how they selected the repertoire, and precisely what the record contains.

              Comet begins with a breathtaking journey through space astride a comet. What are these graceful visitors to our skies? We now know that they bring both life and death and teach us about our origins. Pulitzer Prize-winning astronomer Carl Sagan, author of Cosmos and Contact, and w...riter Ann Druyan explore the origin, nature and future of comets, and the exotic myths and portents attached to them. The authors show how comets have spurred some of the great discoveries in the history of science and raise intriguing questions about these brilliant visitors from the interstellar dark. Were the fates of the dinosaurs and the origins of humans tied to the wanderings of a comet? Are comets the building blocks from which worlds are formed? Comet is an enthralling adventure, indispensable for anyone who has ever gazed up at the heavens and wondered why.

              World renowned scientist Carl Sagan and acclaimed author Ann Druyan have written a Roots for the human species, a lucid and riveting account of how humans got to be the way we are. It shows with humour and drama that many of our key traits - self-awareness, technology, family tie...s, submission to authority, hatred for those a little different from ourselves, reason and ethics - are rooted in the deep past, and illuminated by our kinship with other animals. Astonishing in its scope, brilliant in its insights, and an absolutely compelling listen, Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors is a triumph of popular science.

              Carl Sagan's prophetic vision of the tragic resurgence of fundamentalism and the hope-filled potential of the next great development in human spirituality. The late great astronomer and astrophysicist describes his personal search to understand the nature of the sacred in the vas...tness of the cosmos. Exhibiting a breadth of intellect nothing short of astounding, Sagan presents his views on a wide range of topics, including the likelihood of intelligent life on other planets, creationism and so-called intelligent design, and a new concept of science as 'informed worship'. Originally presented at the centennial celebration of the famous Gifford Lectures in Scotland in 1985 but never published, this book offers a unique encounter with one of the most remarkable minds of the 20th century.
