Summary
Episode 12 posits whether there are alien intelligences, and whether we could communicate with them. And what about UFOs? The answers to these questions take viewers on a journey to Egypt to decode ancient hieroglyphics, to the largest radio telescope on Earth, and, in the spaceship of the imagination, to visit other civilizations in space. Dr. Sagan answers such questions as: "What is the lifespan of a planetary civilization?" "Will we one day hook up with a network of civilizations in the Milky Way Galaxy?" Through the use of startling special effects, episode 13 retraces our 15-billion year journey from the Big Bang to the present. The tragic story of the martyrdom of Hypatia, the woman scientist of ancient Alexandria, is told. This is the famous episode on nuclear war in which Dr. Sagan argues that our responsibility for survival is owed not just to ourselves, but also to the Cosmos, ancient and vast, from which we spring
