Please join us this November as we honor Carl Sagan and celebrate the beauty and wonder of the cosmos he so eloquently described.

This year we will be celebrating with a family-friendly potluck and viewing of Cosmos at South 4th Bar & Cafe in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, just over the river from Manhattan. Bring a sweet or savory dish to share and grab a drink at the bar. They wil have a $5 make-your-own bloody mary special all afternoon.

Bring your kids, bring your parents, and celebrate science, wonderment, and open inquiry with your friends and fellow star stuff in the CFI-NYC community.

Carl Sagan was a Professor of Astronomy and Space Science and Director of the Laboratory for Planetary Studies at Cornell University, but most of us know him as a Pulitzer Prize winning author and the creator of COSMOS. That Emmy and Peabody award-winning PBS television series transformed educational television when it first aired in 1980, but now, thirty years later, it's gone on to affect the hearts and minds of over a billion people in sixty countries.

No other scientist has been able to reach and teach so many nonscientists in such a meaningful way, and that is why we celebrate Dr. Sagan, remember his work, and revel in the cosmos he helped us understand.
