Cosmos. : Blues for a red planet. Traveller's tales

Episode 6 shows the exhilaration of the 17th Century Dutch explorers who ventured in sailing ships halfway around our planet in their quest for wealth and knowledge and compares that to the excitement of Voyager's expeditions to Jupiter and Saturn. The newly acquired treasures of our present golden age of exploration are the focus of this episode. Episode 7 tells how humans once thought the stars were campfires in the sky and the Milky Way "The Backbone of the Night." In this fascinating segment, Dr. Carl Sagan takes viewers back to ancient Greece when the right answer to such a basic question as "What are the stars?" was first glimpsed. He visits the Brooklyn elementary school of his childhood where this same question is still being asked.

With Carl Sagan we circle around the Big Dipper and see if the past can be altered. We trace teen-age Albert Einstein's reverie about travel; his theory of relativity offers a chance to travel to the center of the Galaxy in one lifetime; but the earth returned to is much older than the one left."@en
