Episode Summary

EDIT
The Backbone of Night
AIRED:
Many people are upset that we stopped going to the Moon. There was another time on the ancient island of Samos when Science flourished for a while, but then faded away. Carl Sagan explains how science almost took off centuries before its rediscovery in Europe.

Dr. Sagan goes back to his childhood elementary school where the question "What are stars?" is the subject of discussion.moreless
