Though he worried about the state of the world from time to time, it never stopped him. And when we'd talk about what things might be like in twenty-five, fifty or a hundred years, he said he knew there would be difficult challenges ahead, but he believed we were up to the task. He believed in human ingenuity and compassion, in thinking long-term instead of short, in putting our many differences and superstitions aside. He believed in a better tomorrow. He believed in us.

Carl Sagan died on December 20th, 1996 at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle, with wife Ann Druyan and other family members at his side.
To many of the space artists Carl Sagan was known as among the greatest patrons of our art.
He crossed the substantial gulf between scientist and public educator. His career spanned the transformation of the solar System from tiny telescopic objects to places seen and understood from human and mechanical experience. Unveiling this reality of our cosmic situation was part of his life, and spreading the appreciation of these truths and their implications was another aspect of his life.
