Re: The need for another Sagan
True. There is no one person the general public can focus on. But more and more scientists are now engaging in this important task of popularizing their own fields. This may follow from Sagan's example, or it may result from the realization of how widespread is scientific illiteracy - and what an important job it is to combat such ignorance and regressive attitudes.
