'Semillas estelares', la imagen que inspiró a Sagan el diente de león (Cosmos)

Semillas estelares, Jon Lomberg | Fuente

Sobre esta imagen, Jon Lomberg, el principal colaborador artístico de Carl Sagan durante más de dos décadas, dijo:
“Young stars burst forth from a nebula, like seeds spreading through the galaxy. Just as seeds grow flowers that make more seeds, nebulae form stars that eventually form new nebulae. Cosmic cycles of life and death are apparent at all scales.
This painting was the inspiration for the dandelion motif that runs through the TV series COSMOS. Carl Sagan did not want his “spaceship of the imagination” to have a realistic, technological feel, and this painting brought forth the idea that the spaceship, when seen from outside, resembled a seed, blowing through the cosmos”.
