    Most widely held works by Carl Sagan Cosmos by Carl Sagan Book editions published between and in 24 languages and held by 6, WorldCat member libraries worldwide This book is about science in its broadest human context, how science and civilization grew up together. It is the story of our long journey of discovery and the forces and individuals who helped to shape modern science, including Democritus, Hypatia, Kepler, Newton, Huygens, Champollion, Lowell and Humason. The book also explores spacecraft missions of discovery of the nearby planets, the research in the Library of ancient Alexandria, the human brain, Egyptian hieroglyphics, the origin of life, the death of the Sun, the evolution of galaxies and the origins of matter, suns and worlds. The author retraces the fifteen billion years of cosmic evolution that have transformed matter into life and consciousness, enabling the cosmos to wonder about itself. He considers the latest findings on life elsewhere and how we might communicate with the beings of other worlds A brief history of time : from the big bang to black holes by Stephen Hawking Book 23 editions published between and in English and Undetermined and held by 4, WorldCat member libraries worldwide A Brief History of Time, published in , was a landmark volume in science writing and in world-wide acclaim and popularity, with more than 9 million copies in print globally. The original edition was on the cutting edge of what was then known about the origins and nature of the universe. But the ensuing years have seen extraordinary advances in the technology of observing both the micro- and the macrocosmic world--observations that have confirmed many of Hawking's theoretical predictions in the first edition of his book.

    Prime numbers are not the only thing being transmitted in the Message. Two additional messages are broadcast: one is a playback of the very first Earth transmission into space, replayed to the planet to show that Earth has been noticed. Unfortunately, the first transmission involves Hitler, to the embarrassment of many.

    The second and far more important message is a blueprint for a machine, one designed to take five people somewhere.

    Nobody knows where, or if the machine will even take anyone anywhere. Speculation of doomsday devices are suggested, and many nations debate over who would build the Machine, which nations would have representatives in the Machine, or if the Machine will even be built at all.

    Beyond the scientists and politicians, the religious forces weigh in on the subject. Some argue that the Message is from God, others suggest Satan. Two prominent American preachers, Rev.

    Both preachers are distrustful of the scientists working on the project and argue that religious leaders should be on hand to help translate the message. As more and more of the Machine blueprints are recorded, the more and more the tensions between the religious and the scientific increase.

    Eventually the Machine is built, but destroyed by a bomb placed on one of the parts. The American who was supposed to go in the Machine, David Drumlin, is killed in the explosion.

    This causes the American representative to Vega to be Eleanor. A second machine is built near Hokkaido, Japan, and Ellie and four other people representing different nations, cultures, and religions board.

    Now a decade later, this edition updates the chapters throughout to document those advances, and also includes an entirely new chapter on Wormholes and Time Travel and a new introduction. It shows with humor and drama that many of our key traits--self-awareness, technology, family ties, 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 read, SHADOWS OF FORGOTTEN ANCESTORS is a triumph of popular science 36 editions published between and in English and held by 1, WorldCat member libraries worldwide Discusses practical applications of astronomy, various aspects of our solar system, and the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence Planets by Carl Sagan Book 37 editions published between and in English and German and held by 1, WorldCat member libraries worldwide Lavishly illustrated discussion of the tools and techniques of astronomy, of Earth and the other planets, and of the possibility of life in other parts of the solar system Intelligent life in the universe by I.

After what promises to be a detailed and thoroughly dramatic exploration of the outer solar system from Jupiter to Uranus between and , these space vehicles will slowly leave the solar systems - emissaries of the Earth to the realm of the stars. Affixed to each Voyager craft is a gold-coated copper phonograph record as a message to possible extra-terrestrial civilizations that might encounter the spacecraft in some distant space and time.

    Each record contains photographs of our planet, ourselves and our civilization; almost 90 minutes of the world's greatest music; and evolutionary audio essay on "The Sounds of Earth"; and greetings in almost sixty human languages and one whale language , including salutations from the President of the United States and the Secretary General of the United Nations.
