“The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our contemplations of the Cosmos stir us. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.”
― Carl Sagan, Cosmos
“It’s time to get going again.”
― Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cosmos a Space Time Odyssey
Tonight, a new Cosmos series premieres on Fox. Ever since I heard about this project 2 years ago, I’ve been eagerly awaiting it’s premier. And we are finally here.
The trailer itself gives me goose bumps. Watch the trailer above, and then watch the show. I’m sure it will not disappoint.
Even though I was only 4 at the time, Cosmos left a distinct impression on my when I was a kid. My path into science and engineering probably can be traced back to being filled with things like Cosmos and NOVA during my formative years by my parents, something made easier by the fact that PBS was one of only 3 channels we got over the air on our 13″ TV.
A few years ago I watched through all of Cosmos again. There were things I remembered, things that I didn’t. And, while certain things look dated, the material surprisingly holds up quite well. More importantly, it was still inspiring, and still held really interesting ideas to ponder.
So I am incredibly excited that we’re going to get a new Cosmos this spring. The teaser for this was released at Comic Con this year and is amazing
I seriously can’t wait. I love the fact that they kept the starship of the mind as part of this, and the cosmic calendar. And I love that this is going to be network TV, not hidden off in a specialty cable channel.
