Summary
In episode 2, Dr. Carl Sagan's cosmic calendar makes the 15-billion year history of the universe understandable and frames the origin of the Earth and the evolution of life from microbes to humans. An understanding of how life developed on Earth enables imaginative speculations on what forms life might take elsewhere in the cosmos. Episode 3 includes a historical re-creation of the life of Johannes Kepler -- the last scientific astrologer, the first modern astronomer, and the author of the first science fiction novel. Kepler provided the insight into how the moon and the planets move in their orbits and ultimately how to journey to them
