Christmas Lectures 1977: The Planets What exists beyond Earth? Over six lectures presented in 1977, American astronomer and cosmologist Carl Sagan explores the vast expanse of space that surrounds the third planet from the Sun. Life on Earth Where at first we could only discern the size of our planet and some knowledge of its atmosphere and configuration, the evolution of planetary exploration has revealed not only intricate details of Earth’s climate and geology, but a multitude of stars and planets besides our own.

Created by Common Sense Media with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the service contains objective ratings of apps and other digital learning resources from professional reviewers, along with reviews from dozens of “Graphite Educators,” teachers who are hand-picked by Common Sense Media. Graphite provides unbiased reviews of the learning potential of apps developed for a variety of platforms. Users can search for reviews of resources by subject, grade level, cost (free, “freemium,” or paid), and type (app, game, or website).
