NOTES: Episode 3: All over the world, our ancestors in every culture taught themselves astronomy. Their lives literally depended on it. The first modern astronomer was Johannes Kepler who struggled to find a harmony in the heavens, and made the critical step to move us into the scientific age. Kepler's insights taught us how the moon and planets move in their orbits and, ultimately, how to voyage to them. Episode 4: In 1908, in Siberia, a mysterious explosion felled trees for miles, and made a sound heard around the world. Carl Sagan concludes that the Earth was hit by a small comet. Then we descend through the hellish atmosphere of Venus to explore its broiling surface, heated by the greenhouse effect. The fate of Venus may be cautionary tale for our world. Sagan urges a wise and protective stewardship of the fragile blue planet Earth.
