You are Sailing to interstellar Byzantium. :)

Long after we are gone, a piece of you will be preserved on perhaps the only remaining artifact from Earth. It's really amazing to think about.

Trust me Nick, you've earned your place on the Golden Record.



Sometimes some of the things that your father did, only become truly understood years later - much further down the road in life.

What a precious memory & wonderful legacy for you (both as a son of Carl Sagan, & as a human being). A truly extraordinary gift.

I enjoy your blog & thank you for sharing.

I didn't know your name in fifth grade, but I heard your voice in a movie about Voyager that we watched in Science Class. One word:
