Summary Carl Sagan explores the origin, evolution, and diversity of life on Earth.
One voice in the cosmic fugue: Discusses the question of life and its origins, life on other planets, molecular biology, DNA, and how organisms have adapted to their environment.
Shores of the cosmic ocean: Via a stunning visual representation, the "cosmic zoom," the series begins with a guided tour of the universe from clusters of galaxies to the Milky Way to Earth, landing in Egypt. The discoveries of Eratosthenes are introduced--the measurement of Earth's circumference and its spherical nature. The dawn of systematic scientific research and the Alexandrian Library are discussed. The episode concludes with the "cosmic calendar," a journey through time from the Big Bang to the present.
