The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Cosmos and renowned astronomer Carl Sagan’s international bestseller about the discovery of an advanced civilization in the depths of space remains the “greatest adventure of all time” (Associated Press). Sagan’s book was adapted into a film with the same name in 1997 and starring Jodie Foster; the film version was dedicated to Carl Sagan.
