Here’s some news: Today marks the opening of the The Seth MacFarlane Collection of Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan Archive at the Library of Congress. (That first bit may sound weird but MacFarlane is executive producing a new series called COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey, so it kind of makes sense?)
Anyhow, the collection includes things like Sagan’s papers, correspondence, notebooks, and, hilariously, a comic/doodle page he did when he was just 8-years-old.
