    The Sagan Unit
    A sagan is defined as at least 4 billion which originated from his famous quote “billions and billions” (the smallest amount in “billions” is two billion, so “billions and billions” equal 4 billion). It is estimated that the Milky Way galaxy has 100 sagan (400,000,000,000) stars.

    Carl Sagan’s theory on evolution of Earth i.e 4 billion years is a cycle.

    Carl sagan’s phrase Billions upon Billions. Unit in his name which totals to 4 billions


  4. Arjun

    4 billion is 1 sagan. Because of his billions and billions of stars dialogue. 2 billion + 2 billion hence 4 billion is a sagan.

    Two billions plus two billions equals 4 billions or one Sagan

    The phrase “billions and billions”. The smallest quantity made from “billions and billions” is 4 billion.

    1 sagan = (atleast) 4 billion

    It is the Sagan unit.
    Apparently he used to use the phrase “billions and billions” in his Cosmos series(One of my fave). Th smallest value that can be in billions and billions is 2 biln + 2 biln.
