Author(s): Carl Sagan
Pulitzer Prize-winning author and astronomer Carl Sagan imagines the greatest adventure of all--the discovery of an advanced civilization in the depths of space.
In December of 1999, a multinational team journeys out to the stars, to the most awesome encounter in human history. Who--or what--is out there? In Cosmos, Carl Sagan explained the universe. In Contact, he predicts its future--and our own.
