The accompanying Peabody and Emmy Award winning television series was broadcast in sixty countries. His other books include "The Dragons of Eden, " awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1978, "Broca's Brain, " and the bestseller (with Ann Druyan), "Comet." Dr. Sagan was deeply involved in both spacecraft exploration of the planets and the radio search for extraterrestrial intelligence. His numerous awards included the NASA medals for Exceptional Scientific Achievement and for Distinguished Public Service, the John F. kennedy Astronautics Award, the Honda Prize, the Joseph Priestly Award "for distinguished contributions to the welfare of mankind," and the National Academy of Science Public Service Medal. The National Science Foundation states his "research revolutionized planetary science...his gifts to mankind were infinite."

He died in 1996.
