Abstract:

Edge of forever: Cultural myths of human creation lead to an early history of the universe, introducing the Big Bang theory. Computer animation explains galactic formation and dynamics and a demonstration of the Doppler effect provides an understanding of the red shift of light waves. Dr. Sagan visits India to show how the Hindus seem to have arrived at conclusions approximating modern scientific cosmology, the possibility of an oscillating universe. Radio astronomy--the VLA in New Mexico--is seen as one of the new advances in technology which will contribute to further understanding of the cosmos.

Persistence of memory: Discusses the brain, its functions, brain size and environment, and the physiological synoptic response which enables humans to think. Shows how communication is translated from the "libraires" of the genes and the brain. Discusses DNA in whales and humans, and the study of communication among whales.
