Your typical story of “man meets fruit, man eats fruit, man trips his balls off”.
An audio recording of Carl Sagan on the topic of extraterrestrials turned into a beautifully vivd animation.
Based on the youtube channel “Blank on Blank” which turns audio recordings of famous figures into psychedelic animations in order to help expand and get the overall message and/or wisdom of the topic across with better success.

Aired in 2013.
