Please login to favourite this article.

Ann Druyan is the executive producer, director and writer of the new National Geographic series Cosmos: Possible Worlds. From science fiction to the importance of science in everyday life, she is a woman on a mission, a woman who wants to share her vision, and she has done just that. Because to her, while it’s easy to see a dystopian future, she has a vision of a world (and beyond) which is exciting, optimistic and achievable.

Carrying on the flame she lit with Carl Sagan, Ann wants to create inspire people, not just to encourage young people to pursue a career in science, but to make us all informed decision-makers, so we can’t be manipulated and lied to.

But this isn’t just about a TV show. This is her lifelong mission for science, and for our future. Because to her, it’s when you see the enchanting reality of nature that you get struck by the uplifting possibilities.
