Carl Sagan has always been grateful to Italians for: spaghetti and meatballs, the practice of paving one's front lawn only to continue watering it, and Drakkar Noir. But he's especially thankful for Galileo Galilei, who was the first to point a telescope to the curious heavens and who caught hell for it from the Roman Catholic church.
In honour of Italy, the father of modern observational astronomy, revolutions of science and revolutions of the turntable, here is Carl Sagan's Italo soundtrack.
