Carl Sagan Stamps?

Cornell University's Chronicle Online reports, "A movement to immortalize famed Cornell astronomer Carl Sagan with a U.S. postage stamp was launched Feb. 11..."

Carl Sagan is certainly deserving of a stamp. He was a pioneer in expanding the public's understanding of science. Sagan arguably invented a new form of educational television. And as a cultural icon, he put a face to the wonder of science and a passionate humanist ethic. [via]
