STAR-STUFF

by Thomas R. McDonough, Ph.D.
There is a place with four suns in the sky -- red, white, blue, and yellow; two of them are so close together that they touch, and star-stuff flows between them. I know of a world with a million moons. I know of a sun the size of the Earth -- and made of diamond... The universe is vast and awesome, and for the first time we are becoming part of it. -- Carl Sagan, _The Cosmic Connection_ When I was an undergraduate in the 1960s, I eagerly read the scientific papers of an obscure young astrophysicist who was one of the few researchers investigating the possibilities of life on other worlds. Then I went to graduate school at Cornell University, and not long afterwards, he became a professor there. His name was Carl Sagan. Over the years, as he became my teacher, friend and colleague, I watched as his charisma and gift of poetic language blossomed into a TV personality, bestselling writer, Pulitzer prizewinner, novelist, and the world's leading evangelist of science. And all the while, he continued to do world-class research. I would like to share some of my personal reminiscences of him. Carl was a great professor. His ability to express the most arcane concepts in intuitive terms made it easy to grasp difficult theories of astrophysics. I can still see him drawing on the blackboard, reducing complex phenomena to comprehensible images. This same skill shone through his books and TV shows. He took over a minor scientific journal, _Icarus,_ and persuaded the leading figures of solar-system research to publish some of their major papers there. He loved editing it, even loved assembling the tables of contents. His publisher sometimes got annoyed at the huge phone bills he rang up, because he preferred to speak directly with scientists around the world, rather than rely on mail. But it became a leading periodical in its field. With his wide-ranging mind, he was one of the few scientists able to do research in both biology and astrophysics. In his lab, he re-created the conditions that led to life on primitive earth, and furthered our understanding of the chances of life evolving on other worlds. When NASA designed the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft to be the first ever to fly to Jupiter and Saturn, they discovered that they had incidentally created the first interstellar spaceships. The energy needed to get to Jupiter was so great that the Pioneers would be moving too fast for the sun to pull them back. They would drift on through the Milky Way for billions of years. Some day, they might be found by another civilization. So why not include a message to them? But who could design a message to alien beings having no language in common with us but mathematics? Naturally, they turned to Carl. He devised an ingenious map showing where we are in the galaxy by drawing the positions of pulsars, dead supernova stars that emit fantastically regular radio pulses. To show who made the plaque, it bore a picture of a man and woman. Because these humans were naked, NASA received complaints about sending pornography into space. It is difficult to imagine, though, that tentacled little green beings would find such pictures very erotic. Today, the plaques are past the farthest planets of our solar system, drifting like a message in a bottle through the cosmic ocean of which he often spoke. Perhaps, millions of years from now, after wandering the dust-lanes of the interstellar void and gliding past stars of many colors, one may be found by spacefaring aliens. If so, how wonderfully appropriate that they will be reading a message from Carl Sagan. After these were launched, he led a team including his future wife Ann Druyan that created a more sophisticated message for the two Voyager spacecraft following in the spatial footprints of the Pioneers. They designed a kind of videodisk containing photos of life on earth, samples of our greatest music, and greetings in many languages. Now that message, too, is traveling to the stars. Someday a being may unwrap this gift from a distant planet, and see pictures of sheepherders and astronauts, listen to Beethoven's _Fifth_ and _Johnny B. Goode,_ and puzzle at the kaleidoscope of languages. One of the English messages he, she or it will hear is "Hello from the children of planet Earth" -- spoken by Carl's son, Nick. While the Voyagers flew from Jupiter to Saturn, he and scientists Bruce Murray and Louis Friedman created an organization to further space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). Thus was born The Planetary Society. It became the fastest-growing public-membership organization in the world and quickly reached 100,000 members on every continent, educating people about the universe, and supporting research, especially on Mars and SETI. In his books, articles and shows, Carl campaigned against irrationality. Although he believed it was likely that there is intelligent life on other worlds, he was relentlessly skeptical about claims that the earth is being visited by UFOs. Despite his disbelief in UFOs, he was one of the pioneers of SETI. Back in the early '60s, it took a lot of courage to speak out in favor of looking for astronomical signs of other civilizations, when most scientists regarded this as a lot of Buck Rogers nonsense. He was asked to edit the translation of a book by Soviet astrophysicist Iosif Shklovsky called _Intelligent Life in the Universe._ He added so many notes elaborating his own ideas that it doubled the length of the book, so he was made coauthor. It became the bible of SETI, summarizing the arguments about why life should exist elsewhere, and how we might find it. So persuasive was he that by 1982, he was able to get a petition advocating SETI published in the journal _Science_, signed by 70 scientists, including 7 Nobel prizewinners. This was a tremendous turnaround in the respectability of this controversial field. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to tell anecdotes. Once, he told me about doing a TV show in which he discovered, just before the cameras rolled, that the seat of his pants had split. He had to make certain that he never faced away from the camera. One of my favorite stories was from when he and Shklovsky were sitting together at a conference in the USSR. The speaker droned on about his dubious theory that great scientific ideas are born during times when sunspots are active. Shklovsky whispered that this theory must have been conceived when sunspots were absent. Carl was sometimes criticized for things he was not responsible for, and mocked for things he never said. In his enormously popular _Cosmos_ series, there were many camera shots of his profile. People criticized him for being so egotistical, but this was the choice of the director, not his. Johnny Carson, America's popular talk-show host, loved to affectionately mimic Carl -- one of his favorite guests -- by saying "billions and billions," until everyone associated it with Carl. Yet Carl never said that precise phrase in public until years later. He grew quite tired of it. I remember a concert for Planetfest, a Planetary Society celebration of space exploration in 1981. He spoke about space exploration while accompanied by music conducted by John Williams, and inevitably had to use the word "billions." As soon as he did, tittering broke out in the audience. He glared at the offenders and continued. One of his greatest contributions to society came from his essays for the popular national Sunday supplement, _Parade._ With these, he was able to explain to a huge audience topics from all realms of science, and to attack the endless gullibility of a public that fell for even the most unsupported claims of paranormal events. He reminded them that "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." Through Carl, millions and millions of people learned much about the universe. One extraordinary fact he taught them was that most of the atoms of which we are made were born in stars that exploded long ago. He observed that "We are made of star-stuff." _He_ certainly was. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- [BIO] Dr. Thomas R.

John Sladek: died 10 Mar 2000 John Sladek, full name John Thomas Sladek (1937-10 Mar 2000): American science fiction author who, while he lived in London, was considered part of the "New Wave" movement in England. He died at home (Edina, Minnesota) on 10 Mar 2000 of a genetic lung ailment, before the planned lung transplant could be performed. He was a mordantly, wickedly satirical and sometimes surrealistic protocyberpunk author, who explored the social and philosophical aspects of the human-machine interaction. John Clute, writing in "The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction", described Sladek as "the most formally inventive, the funniest, and very nearly the most melancholy of modern US science fiction writers." The sources of the following include: Science Fiction Writers of America, the Locus-Contento bibliography, and an interview in "Tales of the Unanticipated."

Linebarger Cordwainer Smith: Norstrilia "Norstrilia" (1964-1968) is selected and praised in "Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels" by David Pringle Cordwainer Smith: Christianity in the Fiction of In the 1976 Locus poll, asking readers to nominate their favorite author, Cordwainer Smith came in tied at #17 (with 41 votes), confirming his leadership position at #14 with a similar poll in 1973. "Cordwainer Smith's rhythmic, pseudopoetic ramblings wash over an allegorical (Christian) future universe ruled over by the Lords of the Instrumentality (the nobility). His self-conscious literary prose is undercut by a seeming lack of control over structure that is at once a Romantic posture and an oversentimentalized failing. Yet his stories are compelling to the SF audience for the evocative changes they ring on familiar and worn-down science fiction cliches. He is outrageous. More pointedly, at his most powerful he creates mysterious Poe-like images of half-realized but immensely suggestive transcendence."

Dwight V. Swain: * The Transposed Man [Ace, 1955] Ingo Swann: * Star Fire [Dell, 1978] S. Andrew Swann, pseudonym of Steven Swiniarski (see a few lines below) Thomas Burnett Swann {to be done} Michael Swanwick: Active Member of Science Fiction Writers of America Michael Swanwick: Nebula, Thedore Sturgeon, and IASFM Awards Michael Swanwick: Interview SWEDEN Jennifer Swift: Active Member of Science Fiction Writers of America lives in England Jonathan Swift: best known for "Gulliver's Travels" (1726). Swift started working on this book apparently around 1720, when the idea was advanced in the Scriblerus Club, of which he was a member. It was to have been incorporated in the "Memoirs of Scriblerus." It has the advantage of being a book of interest to adults because of its satire on man and his institutions, and to children because of its Fantasy. It is divided into 4 parts, told in the first person. Part I: On 4 may 1699, Lemuel Gulliver, a ship's surgeon, sails from Bristol. After a shipwreck, he swims ashore to find himself on an island, Lilliput, whose inhabitants are no more than 6 inches high. Here Swift satirizes the meanness of human beings by showing how ridiculous are wars waged by these little people, who take part in them with all seriousness. Political parties are attacked, too. In Lilliput the parties are known by the height of their heels; their greatest controversy involves a vigorous argument about on which end an egg should be broken. Part II: Gulliver finds himself in Brobdingnag, the natives of which are as tall in proportion to him as the Lilliputians were short. Here, in discussions with the King, England in particular and humanity in general are again attacked. The huge King cannot understand the enormous pretensions and vanities of the little people about whom Gulliver tells him. He denounces them as "the most pernicious race of little odious vermin that nature ever suffered to crawl upon the surface of the Earth." Part III: In this, the most Science Fictional, Gulliver makes sport of the vain endeavors of scientists and philosphers by telling about Laputa, where men forget all common sense and concern themselves with speculative philosophy. In Lagado, the flying sialnd, he sees scientists engaged in all sorts of foolish pursuits, one being the extraction of sunbeams from cucumbers. Part IV: This contains the most vicious satire of all, and tells of Gulliver's visit to the land of the Houyhnhnms, a race of intelligent horses who are served by a despised, filty, and degenerate human race known as Yahoos. In the end, Gulliver returns to his wife and family, but finds them unbearable after associating with the Houyhnhnms. "Gulliver's Travels" is the pre-eminent novel to make humanity appear alien, and the alien appear more human, a technique that has been used as a basis for science fiction for the succeeding three centuries.
