Carl Sagan's contributions to the field of science are remarkable, but though Carl Sagan played a crucial role in the American Space Program, he had never been to space!
He conducted research on extraterrestrial life. One of his chemical experiments demonstrated how to produce amino acids from the basic chemicals with the help of radiation.
He was awarded a Peabody Award and two Emmy Awards for the series 'Cosmos'. Some of his popular works include 'The Dragons of Eden; Speculations on the Evolution of Human Intelligence', 'Contact' and 'The Demon-Haunted World'. The ‘Dragons of Eden; Speculations on the Evolution of Human Intelligence’ fetched him the Pulitzer Prize. Apart from these, Sagan worked as the Editor in Chief of 'Icarus' and published articles and scientific writings in publications such as 'Skeptical Inquirer'.
