Captain Sagan battles pseudoscience!

Graphic artist Michael Lester at the blog Ninjerktsu has a brilliant take on Carl Sagan and his “Spaceship of the Imagination” from the series Cosmos (click on the images for the full storyboard and dialogue):

Astrology is really too easy a target (so to speak), and I think it’s hardly worth linking to Sagan’s elegant takedown of its absurd claims.

Oh, what the heck.

(And I’ll throw in Tim Minchin’s beat-poet assault on pseudo- and anti-science to boot.)

After more than 30 years, Cosmos is still, hands down, the best general science documentary series ever produced. Watch all 13 episodes for free here.
