Abstract:

[Volume] VI : 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.
