Our Carl Sagan weekend will feature two classic episodes of Cosmos: The Edge of Forever and Encyclopedia Galactica. The first of these explores cosmology, the large-scale structure of the universe, and General Relativity. The second concerns the search for intelligent life beyond the Earth and the probability of advanced civilizations existing elsewhere in the universe.

In addition, we'll have door prizes, a screening of the movie Contact, and special appearances by Carl Sagan and Albert Einstein themselves!
