Carl Sagan (Billions)
I will take an extract from an article by Joel Achenbach which eloquently describes Carl Sagan’s incredible capacity to explain and explore our vast universe:
We live in Carl Sagan’s universe, awesomely vast, deeply humbling. It’s a universe that, as Sagan reminded us again and again, isn’t about us. We’re a granular element. Our presence may even be ephemeral, a flash of luminescence in a great dark ocean. Or perhaps we are here to stay, somehow finding a way to transcend our worst instincts and ancient hatreds, and eventually become a galactic species. We could even find others out there, the inhabitants of distant, highly advanced civilizations, the Old Ones, as Sagan might put it.
No one has ever explained space, in all its bewildering glory, as well as Sagan did. He’s been gone now for nearly two decades, but people old enough to remember him will easily be able to summon his voice, his fondness for the word billions and his boyish enthusiasm for understanding the universe we’re so lucky to live in.
The news that Cosmos is having a revival thanks partly to Seth MacFarlane and Sagan’s widow Ann Druyan is exciting indeed. The original series should be made compulsory viewing for all students and hopefully with the help of Neil DeGrasse Tyson the updated ‘Cosmos’ will capture the imagination of a new generation of inquisitive minds.
McFarlane’s purchase of, and donation to the Library of Congress, Carl Sagan’s archive (all 798 boxes of it) is a truly excellent gift.
We admire this great scientist and great science communicator who gave us all, as the porter said, the universe.
Wear our Carl Sagan t-shirt and show your love for a great man.
The deisgner of this Carl Sagan t-shirt, Heather Brennan has also designed our David Attenborough t-shirt design, celebrating another legendary science commnicator.
These t shirts are unique for being made exclusively for us wholly with fibres ring spun into yarns manufactured exclusively for WeAdmire. These yarns are then knitted into a single jersey fabric suitable for t shirts.
The CoolMax bit exploits the surface tension of water to wick moisture from your skin. It works through micro channels engineered into the profile of the fibre. These channels are physical attributes, they are there for the life of the fibre.
The Fresh FX bit embeds a silver salt in the molecular structure of the fibre that stops the propagation of bacteria which, left unchecked, ultimately cause a sour odour. Because the silver salt is embedded within the fibre it, like the wicking, is similarly permanent; it will not leech out with wear and washing.
These attributes deliver shirts that remain cool and dry almost regardless of what you might do in them and similarly they remain fresh. And the ongoing performance of the fabric is guaranteed. This is important, these shirts will become your favourite items of apparel, you will want to wear your shirts again and again.
These shirts are marvellous to travel with, they stay fresh if you don’t have the chance to wash them, they wash easily when you do have the chance, and they dry super quickly. There is also a very useful side effect to all this: our shirts keep anything you wear on top of them and what you might wear after wearing them fresher too.
The cut and fit and sizing of these shirts is exclusive to us and was specified by Anastasia Vouyouka, a published guru of fit in the fashion industry.
The feel of the very best natural fibre shirts you have experienced with the performance of the fibres that set the benchmarks for wicking and freshness. It is very unlikely you will have experienced this level of technical performance in a decorated t shirt before.
