Read Cosmos Online Free - Cosmos has 13 heavily illustrated chapters, corresponding to the 13 episodes of the Cosmos television series. In the book, Sagan explores 15 billion years of cosmic evolution and the development of science and civilization. Cosmos traces the origins of knowledge and the scientific method, mixing science and philosophy, and speculates to the future of science. The book also discusses the underlying premises of science by providing biographical anecdotes about many prominent scientists throughout history, placing their contributions into the broader context of the development of modern science.
The book covers a broad range of topics, comprising Sagan's reflections on anthropological, cosmological, biological, historical, and astronomical matters from antiquity to contemporary times. Sagan reiterates his position on extraterrestrial life—that the magnitude of the universe permits the existence of thousands of alien civilizations, but no credible evidence exists to demonstrate that such life has ever visited earth.

Can I give this one ten stars? If I had a religion, I would be a Carl Saganian. Love him so much.

إن تأملنا أنفسنا من منظور كوني
فإن كل واحد منا لا يقدر بثمن
إن خالفك إنساناً في الرأي ، فدعه يعيش
ففي مائة بليون مجرة لن تجد واحداً غيره
هذا باختصار هو كارل ساجان (أو سيجن) أيتها البشرية
واحد من أعظم العلماء الذين أنجبتهم هذه الأرض
ليس فقط لإسهاماته العلمية ، ولكن لإنسانيته التي تدعو حقاً للتأمل

I wonder what Carl Sagan may have thought of 9/11 and the world in the new millennium, a strife-torn place which is being shaken up and shaken out every moment. I imagine the civil but slightly horrified and slightly bemused tone he may have employed while talking about the Iraq and Afghanistan w...

The Star system in GR is absolutely inadequate for rating this book.
Gosh, I should not use the term ‘absolutely’ for something in which everything orbits around relativity.
Anyway, I think something like this would give a better idea of my opinion about this book: my rating is an universe of zill...

I saw the TV series years before I read the book. I'm glad I did; I was able to project the image and voice of Carl Sagan into the words on the page. If there is a better science related, non-fiction book out there, please, someone point it out to me.
Revised Oct. 2017.

من مدونتي: ثمانون كتابا بحثا عن مخرج
لو كنت سوف أقرأ كتاب علمياً واحداً في حياتي, بل لو كنت سوف أقراء كتاباً بشرياً واحداً, سوف أختار كتاب الكون لكارل ساغان.
عادة يكون هدف الكتب العلمية التي تكتب لغير المختصين هو تبسيط المعلومة, لكن كتاب الكون يسلك مسلكا أخر, كتاب ا...

I'm not sure what I could possibly say about Cosmos that hasn't already been said by countless others in the 28 years since its publication, and likely in a far more intelligent and eloquent way than I ever could. But upon recently reading this book for the first time (which may seem a bit belate...

A five stars to this book.
Stars borrowed from skies that I witnessed when I was eight or maybe ten and would wake up early at pre-dawn, because that was the best time for star gazing after all.
To read Mr.Sagan, the words so simple describing the Universe so complex. To read a small passage and...

Science is changing the way we see the universe at a rapid pace. Black holes, gravity waves, Higgs boson, and dark matter were (mathematical) theories a generation ago. Today they are reality. Popular science television shows can teach the public about quantum theory but anything over ten years o...

1: The Shores of the Cosmic Ocean: After an introduction by Ann Druyan, including the benefits of the end of the Cold War, Carl Sagan opens the program with a description of the cosmos and a "Spaceship of the Imagination" (shaped like a dandelion seed). The ship journeys through the...
