Amara, I met Carl Sagan some years ago at a SETI conference in
Mojave where he was the keynote speaker. I was fortunate enough
to work with him (for a very short time) in an event which was
designed to encourage children to ask questions about science.
I appreciated his enthusiasm and his sense of humor. His book
_Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark_ remains
one of my favorite books and references. In fact, my essay concerning
art and science is prefaced with an anecdotal passage about turning
the pages of a book by candlelight -- the candlelight he shined
on my own mind.
