I was just a 17-year old kid from the Bronx with dreams of becoming a scientist, and somehow the world’s most famous astronomer found time to invite me to Ithaca in upstate NY and spend a Saturday with him.
I remember that snowy day like it was yesterday. He met me at the bus stop. He showed me his laboratory at Cornell University. Carl reached behind his desk, and inscribed this book (Cosmic Connection) for me:
For Neil Tyson,
With all good wisdom to a future astronomer.
- Carl Sagan
At the end of the day, he drove me back to the bus station. The snow was falling harder. He wrote his phone number, his home phone number, on a scrap of paper. And he said, “If the bus can’t get through, call me. Spend the night at my home, with my family.”
I already knew I wanted to become a scientist, but that afternoon I learned from Carl the kind of person I wanted to become. He reached out to me and to countless others. Inspiring so many of us to study, teach, and do science. Science is a co-operative enterprise, spanning the generations. It’s the passing of a torch from teacher to student to teacher. A community of minds reaching back from antiquity and forward to the stars."

anxieteenn asked: I don't know what to do
i dont know either because everyone is different and this may not help but i just cry like a lotttt and just shake around and shake it out and sometimes i take a nice hot shower and sometimes to distract myself i throw myself into math homework or latin homework but if you hate school or something idk draw a picture of your favourite person to be around or write a story about your favourite memory and wrap yourself up like a burrito in a nice warm blanket or quilt and think about all the times youve smiled and why and smile again because some of those moments will most likely come around again in your life and hug one of your parents and tell people you love them and feel BEAUTIFUL
