Ann Druyan starts blogging

If you are wondering who that is – here is a snippet from her bio –

Ms. Druyan was married for nearly two decades to her long time
collaborator, astronomer Carl Sagan, until his death in December 1996.
Their children are Alexandra, born in 1982 and Sam, born in 1991.

I am a big fan of Carl Sagan and have been one since I was a child hooked onto Science through his unforgettable Cosmos series.  Ann Druyan has worked on many projects with Carl Sagan including Contact (one of my all-time favorite great movies). Ann Druyan entered the blogosphere on Dec 20th, on the 10th anniversary of his death, with a gripping, sentimental post about Carl Sagan.  If you ever had a wish to read Carl Sagan’s blog, this is the closest it gets. Welcome aboard Ann.  Thank you for  starting a blog on behalf of the zillion fans of Carl Sagan around the world. We are sure you will make the science blogosphere a better place. P.S. It appears Nick Sagan has been blogging almost for a year now.

    Thanks for the info, Sukumar. I am a great fan of Carl Sagan, right from the days of “Cosmos” teleseries. I started loving astronomy and never stoped loving it since then. I once had a dream of becoming an astronomer.

    I read about the Alaxandria library in his book “The Cosmos”. I felt so bad when he died. He was so much a part of my childhood. I will check out the blog.

    Thanks Archana. As anonymous said, Cosmos is available in DVD format. I am a proud owner of the DVDs thanks to NK Sreedhar and Arun Sankaranarayanan.
