A really beautiful video, and a timeless speech by the forever amazing Carl Sagan. Unfortunately this video tries to make it seem like NASA isn't the reason the U.S. space program is dead (except it is). If NASA had only paid attention to Robert Zubrin and indeed Carl Sagan himself, we would already have a permanent science station on the red planet; not to mention space craft far in advance of the ridiculous (and now canned) shuttle. (Read: Orion Project/Nuclear pulse engine). I am an avid fan of all things science and all things space, what I have to say to anyone at NASA in any sort of decision making position is this. "Damn you sir, and what you have done to our dreams.". NASA deserves no credit for this, once, a long time ago they did, but not now. NASA is responsible for so many backward steps it should be dissolved and replaced by something that actually works.

There are still much to learn about Earth before we venture off outside of it.

The truth!

Very true movie.. It does not matter which name comes at the end.. it's about the message.. the need for change, and we all are responsible.. If wanting to be galactic, one must act like it, and be fully conscious and aware of itself and its actions :-D

Love, Light, Strength & Honor

US space program is dead because it isn't economical. US pol. rather spend money on wars "on terror", oil, nat. resources, as US debt is enormous.
Its more than a commonsense (for US gov.) to stop financing dreams about landing or building a "tree-house" base on Mars. This story wasn't realized for decades as it was promised by all leaders so far.

+
putting man on a moon cannot be compared with red planet, not to mention landing there or building a base. NASA is doing good job with other scientific projects that are not as drastic and expensive as landing on Mars

btw:
"The average cost to launch a Space Shuttle is about $450 million per mission."

Worthless!

Carl Sagan's COSMOS.....amoung the first scientis that tried to bring cosmology and science to the common man. He was more than a scientist......he was something we should all try to be in out unique way.

#2 The US space program is temporarily dead because Obozo pulled the plug on it. NASA is still trying to find funding to continue the Constellation Project. I for one hope they succeed.
As far as the Nuclear pulse engine goes, that idea was scrapped decades ago because of the nuclear fallout it produced in our atmosphere.
