Cosmos: A Personal Voyage

In 1980, this 13-part PBS series, co-written and presented by Carl Sagan, was the most widely watched series in the history of American television. This week, you can marvel once again at the episode, “Blues for a Red Planet,” which details the elaborate history of the human fascination with Mars and reveals the stunning 1976 Viking spacecraft photos of its surface. Mars Rover Driver Team Lead for the Mars Exploration Rover Project, Scott Maxwell is also on hand with a post-film Q&A and lecture on the latest Mars developments, so come wax nostalgic on the days when humans actually dreamed big—and believed in stellar possibilities.
