Event Description

Join us for conversation, drinks, and more in a friendly atmosphere at Super Happy Fun Land [Houston, TX], as we honor Carl Sagan and celebrate the beauty and wonder of the cosmos he so eloquently described.

If you are interested in presenting/reading something aloud (quote/poetry) or if you have a Carl Sagan DVD to play at the event,  please contact Emily at emilyhasbooks@gmail.com

Other (atheists, humanists, skeptics, science lovers) groups will be invited to this event from around Houston.

Why celebrate Carl Sagan?
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 non-scientists 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.
