NOTES: Episode 5: Mars has fascinated humans for centuries, in science fiction and in science. Carl Sagan visits the observatory Percival Lowell built to study the Martian " canals " which Lowell believed were built by a dying civilization. In our time, two Viking spacecraft have landed on Mars, but found no canals, past or present, and no Martians. Human someday might unlock the water frozen in the polar caps. Then there will be Martians - visitors and eventually homesteaders from the planet earth.. Episode 6: At the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Carl Sagan compares the exhilaration of an ancient sailing ship voyage of exploration with the excitement of astronomers who see the first close-up photographs of Jupiter's moons taken by the voyager spacecraft. Following in voyage's path, the spaceship of the imagination takes us through the rings of Saturn, and into the thick atmosphere of its moon, titan, rich in organic matter, before continuing on to the sea of interstellar space.
