The Late Carl Sagan is photograph next to the Winged Planet. In his book Contact, and on page 431 in the authors note. The late Carl Sagan pays tribute, among others, to the late I. S. Shklovskii, and acknowledge I. S. Shklovskii as one of SETI pioneers.
But the question remains as to why would Carl Sagan would want to be associated with this very ancient representation of the Sumerian Winged Planet. Dr Carl Sagan once wrote about the Sumerian Cylinder Seals and I quote "The illustrations on the cylinder seals have for this reason generally defied attempts to understand them in detail. They refer to mythological material otherwise lost... In each, there is a clear representation of some celestial object--a central circle, or sphere, surrounded by other, generally smaller circles or spheres." End of Quote.
