A space-obsessed boy and his dog, Carl Sagan, take a journey toward family, love, hope and awe in this funny and moving novel. Eleven-year-old Alex Petroski loves space and rockets, his mom, his brother, and his dog, Carl Sagan --- named for his hero, the real-life astronomer. All he wants is to launch his golden iPod into space the way Carl Sagan (the man, not the dog) launched his Golden Record on the Voyager spacecraft in 1977. From Colorado to New Mexico, Las Vegas to LA, Alex records a journey on his iPod to show other lifeforms what life on Earth, his Earth, is like.
