Sagan's Cosmos on Hulu

I find it particularly fitting that Carl Sagan's entire Cosmos series is now being shown on Hulu (for frees, of course). Currently, the Kepler telescope is currently undergoing calibration tests before it jettisons its protective wrapping and starts a three-year search for other Earth-like planets. It's difficult to forget this as Sagan speaks about the Earth being the only known location of life in his well-described universe, although his confidence in other life-bearing planets is quite convincing.
