Carl Edward Sagan (November 9, 1934 – December 20, 1996) was an American astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist, author, science popularizer, and science communicator in astronomy and other natural sciences. He is best known for his work as a science popularizer and communicator. His best known scientific contribution is research on extraterrestrial life, including experimental demonstration of the production of amino acids from basic chemicals by radiation. Sagan assembled the first physical messages sent into space: the Pioneer plaque and the Voyager Golden Record, universal messages that could potentially be understood by any extraterrestrial intelligence that might find them. Sagan argued the now accepted hypothesis that the high surface temperatures of Venus can be attributed to and calculated using the greenhouse effect.

What a brilliant and insightful person!! The good seem to always go way to soon. It`s hard to believe it`s been 12 years.

"Personality"? Dr. Carl Sagan was a lifelong physicist with doctorates in both astronomy and astrophysics. To reduce his occupation to "personality" is to demean his many scientific contributions and achievements, IMO.
