Seth MacFarlane donates Carl Sagan’s papers to Library of Congress
Not only is he rebooting Sagan’s iconic Cosmos TV series for Fox next year (starring Neil deGrasse Tyson, no less), now he has generously donated money to allow the U.S. Library of Congress to acquire Carl Sagan’s personal papers.
Included in the papers are personal letters, drafts of the Contact screenplay, academic articles, and the childhood drawing that you see above. 
It’s appropriate that the great communicator of science, who believed that it should be accessible to everyone, should have his personal papers given the same privilege.
