Abstract:

Traveller's tales : A visit with Dr. Carl Sagan and his colleagues at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena who are involved with the Voyager II exploratory mission to the environs of Jupiter and its satellites; contrasts 20th century space exploration with that in 17th century Holland and the achievements of Christiaan Huygens.

Backbone of night: Host Carl Sagan describes the scientific innovations of ancient Ionian physicists, their theories on the nature of air, atoms, and the stars, and the ultimate decline of science as a structured body of knowledge in the wake of Pythagorean and platonic mysticism.
