Cosmos: A Personal Voyage
This list wouldn’t be complete without the documentary Cosmos. Made in 1978 and is one the most viewed documentary on earth. And rightfully so. Prominent astronomer Carl Sagan guides his viewers with his enchanting voice through 13 episodes of 1 hour covering a wide range of scientific and philosophical theories, including the start of the universe and the ancient lost library of Alexandria, life on mars and redshifting galaxies, wormholes and the origin of life, natural selection and UFO’s, hindu cosmology and the human brain. He saw the human species as beings that are just dipping their toes in the water of the shores of the cosmic ocean. While reflecting on humanities potential and its danger to itself he makes us feel like one big happy but troubled family on this pale blue dot we call earth. Do yourself a favor, lock yourself in and watch Cosmos.
