If you're a #Cosmos  fan make sure to tune in right now!
Smart Girls co-founder and executive producer Meredith Walker will be virtually sitting down with Ann Druyan, executive producer of 'Cosmos'

Do you have a question for Ann? Be sure to post it on the hangout page and we might answer your question LIVE! 

Ann Druyan is an acclaimed author and television producer, and the widow of renowned astrophysicist Carl Sagan. Sagan and Druyan co-wrote the original COSMOS series, collaborated on numerous books, articles and speeches, and co-created the Robert Zemeckis-directed film “Contact, “starring Jodie Foster

Druyan served as Creative Director of NASA’s legendary Voyager Interstellar Message Project, a record containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth intended to communicate a story of our world to extraterrestrials. The contents of the record were selected by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan. In addition to the natural sounds of the surf, wind and other elements of nature, the record contains recordings of Druyan’ s brain and nervous system impulses. These recordings were taken at Bellevue hospital in New York, just days after Druyan and Sagan had declared their love for each other. During the recording process Druyan meditated about “the wonder of love, of being in love,” so that extraterrestrials might be able to decipher the sounds and form an understanding of human emotions. Druyan’ s brainwave recordings are still moving through interstellar space at 35, 000 miles per hour.

 There are two asteroids named for Druyan and Sagan that are in perpetual wedding-ring orbit around the sun.

I think that the pressure, as a woman, to be this perfect multi-hyphenate in every area of our life hampers our ability to do what we love and share it.
