"It’s time to get going again…" - Neil deGrasse Tyson
Carl Sagan’s COSMOS: A Personal Voyage is considered one of the most significant science documentaries ever created and was described as “a watershed moment for science-themed television programming” by David Itzkoff of the New York Times. The television series used groundbreaking special effects and compelling storytelling to take viewers on a journey through the Solar System. When it originally aired in 1980, it became the most watched program in the history of public television in the United States and has gone on to be seen by over 400 million people in 60 countries.
Neil deGrasse Tyson will pick up where Carl Sagan left off in a reboot of the critically acclaimed series entitled COSMOS: A Space-Time Odyssey. The premiere will be simulcast on 10 U.S. television networks and the series will be broadcast on 220 channels in 181 countries worldwide, making the series available to over 500 million homes.
In 1980, Carl Sagan opened his series Cosmos with these words, capturing both the immensity and intimacy of the universe. Now, thirty four years later, Neil DeGrasse Tyson stands on the same seaside promontory Sagan used to open his program to introduce Cosmos to a new generation.
I’d love it if we got a new Cosmos series every 35 years or so, continuing to bring science and scientific thought processes to the masses. Cosmos3 in 2048!
