The highly rated Cosmos from 1980, narrated by Carl Sagan, has been rebooted with host Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.
Cosmos is a TV series that explores our universe from individual atoms all the way to the observable universe. It tries its best to present all information in a way that everyone, even those who aren’t studied in the sciences, can relate to.
Dr. Tyson, like many scientists, has been an advocate of getting younger kids interested in science from the start. Keeping curiosity, which is in all children, alive throughout adulthood is an important concept that our society needs in order to further continue down the path of discovery.
The first episode aired last Sunday, March 9th, on networks around the world, including 10 in the United States alone. It will air every week, for a total of 13 episodes, on Sundays at 8pm Central/9pm Eastern time on Fox, and Mondays on The National Geographic Channel.
You can also watch full episodes after they air at the Cosmos Website.
This show is for everyone, whether you are deeply involved in science, or just love to absorb new information. Neil deGrasse Tyson does an excellent job of making sure that the entire audience will understand, if not completely grasp, the information.
