A much-awaited sequel from the 80s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage by Carl Sagan has come to television once more to tell us how humans developed their concept of the laws of nature and their place in the universe. We are talking about us.
13 billion years ago, some starts died in the universe and fragments of it are embedded in us. The iron in our blood, the calcium in our bones are all products of stars that have long since died some 10 – 13 billion years ago. Surprised?
How about knowing that the world isn’t flat and we are living in a galaxy, known to man, but is just one part of the total universe? Too elementary?
This is why you must all stay glued on your TV sets when COSMOS: A Space-Time Odyssey premieres simultaneously on March 12, 2014 on National Geographic Channel (NGC) and FOX at 10 PM.
Produced by Seth MacFarlane of animated series Family Guy, it only proves his enthusiasm for astronomy and astrophysics, MacFarlane teamed up with Sagan’s original collaborators on Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, Ann Druyan and Steven Soter.
COSMOS: A Space-Time Odyssey is hosted by popular astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, author of New York Times bestsellers Death By Black Hole and Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier.
