“That pure chance could be so generous & so kind…”
fuckyeahexistentialism:

“When my husband died, because he was so famous & known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me — it still sometimes happens — & ask me if Carl changed at the end & converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again. Carl faced his death with unflagging courage & never sought refuge in illusions. The tragedy was that we knew we would never see each other again. I don’t ever expect to be reunited with Carl. But, the great thing is that when we were together, for nearly twenty years, we lived with a vivid appreciation of how brief & precious life is. We never trivialized the meaning of death by pretending it was anything other than a final parting. Every single moment that we were alive & we were together was miraculous — not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance… That pure chance could be so generous & so kind… That we could find each other, as Carl wrote so beautifully in Cosmos, you know, in the vastness of space & the immensity of time… That we could be together for twenty years. That is something which sustains me & it’s much more meaningful…
The way he treated me & the way I treated him, the way we took care of each other & our family, while he lived. That is so much more important than the idea I will see him someday. I don’t think I’ll ever see Carl again. But I saw him. We saw each other. We found each other in the cosmos, and that was wonderful.“
Ann Druyan, talking about her husband, Carl Sagan

Carl Sagan’s Cosmos Sequel Coming from Seth MacFarlane 
This came out of nowhere: Fox has ordered a 13-episode documentary series that will follow up on Carl Sagan’s Cosmos. The producers will be Dr. Sagan’s wife—the amazing Ann Druyan, who was a Cosmos co-writer—and Seth MacFarlane!
Yes, the creator of Family Guy is going to produce the sequel to  Cosmos, which will be presented by astrophysicist and science educator Neil deGrasse Tyson.  I love Neil, but taking over Carl’s heritage is going to be hard.  Apparently, the idea came up after Druyan and MacFarlane—who is a space  nerd—met. The other team member will be the other co-writer of the  original Cosmos, the astrophysicist Steven Soter.
