“Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane has donated a wealth of information to the Library of Congress.

He recently helped them acquire 800 boxes of information and documents belonging to the late Carl Sagan, which documented the famous scientist and astronomer’s life and work.

“All I did was write a check, but it’s something that was, to me, worth every penny,” MacFarlane told The Associated Press by phone from Los Angeles. “He’s a man whose life’s work should be accessible to everybody.”

“We are honored to preserve and make accessible to researchers the legacy of Carl Sagan, a man who devoted his life to the study of the universe,” Librarian of Congress James Billington said in a statement.

McFarlane has also worked with Sagan’s widow, Ann Druyan, bringing together screenwriters and scientists to create a follow-up to Sagan’s “Cosmos” mini-series. Astrophysicst Neil deGrasse Tyson is set to host the series, which is scheduled to be released next year.
