Narayan of Upworthy found a Charlie Rose interview with Carl Sagan from 1966 that “…gave me the goosebumps,” he said. In the interview Carl Sagan asks “Who is making all the decisions about science and technology that are going to determine the type of future that our children are going to live in? Just some members of Congress? But there’s no more than a handful of Members of Congress with any background in science at all!”
Sagan bemoans the loss of an important source of bi-partisan, competent advice for Congress in science and technology- the Office of Technology Assessment.
