Here's The Symphony of Science, where John Boswell posts his autotuned snippets of Cosmos and other scientific talks, turning them into song. Here's Ann Druyan discussing the songs on the 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast.
The sky calls to us
If we do not destroy ourselves
We will one day venture to the stars

A still more glorious dawn awaits
Not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise
A morning filled with 400 billion suns
The rising of the milky way.

Carl Sagan

Man. That's shameless geek foreplay right there. No wonder we love him.

Happy Birthday, Carl.

I just caught Jeff Goldblum's bit on yesterday's Colbert Report.  Apparently he's got some bad karma because he's being exiled to some Law & Order show.  But after watching his bit, I just have to say:

Will somebody please, please hire that man to star as Carl Sagan in a biopic?  Pretty please?
