Carl Sagan’s Cosmos – The Harmony of the Worlds

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the third episode of Carl Sagan’s highly acclaimed PBS documentary series – Cosmos.

Join us as we follow Carl Sagan in tracing the life of Johannes Kepler, the last scientific astrologer and the first modern astronomer.

Johannes Kepler was the author of one of the first science fiction novels ever written – Somnium (The Dream).

Kepler provided the insight into how the moon and the planets move in their orbits and formulated the three laws of planetary motion that bare his name. It’s also a story about the scientific process of discovery, and how the search for truth is never easy but always worthwhile.
