Did any of you ever realized those posters on Ford’s wall while he was studying at Backup College? Just look:

The first one everyone knows - Tesla. But come on! Look at the other guy. 

This is Carl Sagan - well known cosmologist, astrophysicist, astronomer and astrobiologist. He was also interested in UFO raports and stuff… But… Let’s look at him. Just look.

Isn’t he a meme? But it is not the point of it. Look at his clothes… I mean: Do you see the similarity? Or is it just me?

Well… Looks kind of familiar, doesn’t it?

But wait… There is something else. Not only the old Ford wears the same clothes as his idol - Carl Sagan. 

That nerd used to dress himself like Sagan when he was young as well: just look! Isn’t it kind of adorable?

Their clothes are so similar. I can’t help it. Like… Ford is so nerdy. OMG.

We on Earth have just awakened to the great oceans of space and time from which we have emerged.  We are the legacy of 15 billion years of cosmic evolution.  We have a choice:  We can enhance life and come to know the universe that made us, or we can squander our 15 billion year heritage in meaningless self-destruction.  What happens in the first second of the next cosmic year depends on what we do, here and now, with our intelligence and our knowledge of the cosmos.
—  Carl Sagan

Photographer Evan Dalen was able to capture the sense of infinity we all feel when we gaze up at the night sky. I’m reminded of one of my favorite Sagan quotes.

“The Cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us – there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a great height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.”Carl Sagan
