Trivia

Speaking on Nerdist podcast #489, Neil deGrasse Tyson said that "(the show will be airing) on Sunday night (March 9, 2014), in prime time after it had been promoted during the Super Bowl, FOX had the Super Bowl, after it had been promoted during the World Series in the bottom of the seventh inning in game three on Saturday night, and it is airing on one hundred seventy-one stations around the world in forty-five languages. Any one of those sentences is a mind-blow, the fact it is all happening together is a stunning statement that there is a recognition by forces that be that science deserves to be mainstreamed."

For a program that makes us feel so small, Cosmos has a lot of heart
10 March 2014 | by willwri14See all my reviews

Neil deGrasse Tyson's remake of Carl Sagan's original docu-series "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage". Carl Sagan allowed the public to see the wonders of science in an entertaining, thought-provoking and immensely educational way, and Tyson manages to capture the spirit and integrity of the original series, while giving the science and facts of the 1980 original a breath of fresh air. Tyson's narration is full of charm, and the program does the audience an immense favour, and makes "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" an easily absorbed yet thought-provoking experience.

As an admirer of the universe, I couldn't wait to view Tyson's Cosmos – even as someone who is constantly trying to absorb facts about the universe, I still managed to pick up some facts I wasn't already aware of, and this is merely the beginning. The series has 13 episodes, spread over three months, and I can already tell the program has a huge amount to give. Full of lush imagery and wonderful animation, Cosmos is a pleasure to watch, and makes learning extremely easy, something that is becoming extremely difficult in the age of no attention span. Not only does Tyson allow for lighthearted, absorbable fact, but he also allows us to probe into our own imagination, and explore the universe ourselves. Everything in Cosmos is simplified for easy learning, yet isn't dumbed down so far that the fact is closer to fiction – the visuals alongside Tyson's wonderful commentary are absolutely mind-blowingly beautiful, but allow for visual learners to take something away from Cosmos as well.

Tyson finished the episode with a heartfelt story involving his relationship with Carl Sagan, and his inspirational ways – I hope that many are inspired by Tyson's breath of fresh air in the documentary genre, and allows for the population of the world to reach for the stars. Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is absolutely worth a watch, it is entertaining, heartfelt, absorbable, and most important, educational. As Sagan once said, "The Cosmos is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be", and I hope 'Cosmos' never ends, because all that it is is awe-inspiring and jaw-dropping in its beauty and splendour.
