    There both Geniuses. Carl Sagan was one of the first scholars in recent history to sit down and make real science fun and accessible.

    Sagan was brilliant at making science easy to understand for everybody....Hawking is just INCREDIBLY brilliant!!!!! BIG fan of both, watched all cosmos episodes multiple times... Lost my dad to ALS, the same condition Hawking's has...(Lou Gehrig's disease)

    Sorry to hear that mtndoc. Both these minds are responsible for making science in the grander scene accessible. Brian Green, Einstein, Bill Nye (to a lesser extent) Beakmen(through an even lesser extent) are revealers to the reality reality once clouded by ignorance and oppression.
