NOTES: CONTENTS: Episode 11.--The human brain is the point of embarkation for all our cosmic journeys. Carl Sagan ushers us through the human brain to witness the architecture of thought, and enters the 'brain library' where trillions of bits of information are stored. Something of the information within our genes, our brains, and our libraries has been launched into space aboard the Voyager space craft - a message in a bottle to being of other worlds. Episode 12.--Carl Sagan examines the persistent reports of UFOs and argues that there is no convincing evidence to support the notion that they are extraterrestrial visitors. But the world's largest radio telescope stands able to receive radio messages sent by alien civilizations anywhere in the Milky Way. Dr. Sagan allows us to riffle through a "galactic computer" the respository of data on million planets of other stars.
