Inspiring Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos”

“Starseeds” by Jon Lomberg

From the artist’s website:

“This painting was the inspiration for the dandelion motif that runs through the TV series COSMOS. Carl Sagan did not want his “spaceship of the imagination” to have a realistic, technological feel, and this painting brought forth the idea that the spaceship, when seen from outside, resembled a seed, blowing through the cosmos.”
