Carl Sagan

Carl Sagan

was an American astronomer, astrophysicist, cosmologist, author, science popularizer, and science communicator in the space and natural sciences

Nevertheless, we see that Wegener was right, and those who objected on the grounds of unavailable mechanism were wrong. /think/ Carl Sagan quotes
