Join the heroic quest for knowledge as we set course for the stars with the twenty-first century reboot of Cosmos. Hosted by world-renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, this thirteen-part ground-breaking series will venture to new worlds, trace our roots back to the hearts of ancient stars, and travel across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale.Written by
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."

Neil deGrasse Tyson is a marvelous astrophysicist who really loves his field and you can see this in the way he narrates the series. Cosmos is not only a journey, it also shows how much science has improved since the original series, all the new evidence, technology, and ideas, they encourage the next generation to pursue knowledge and discover something amazing. The visuals are stunning, the animation is unique, and most importantly it is very informative. The way Neil describes the universe is very coherent and easy for everyone to understand. This is an excellent series that shows science isn't just flat rigorous work, it is about discovery, asking questions, wonder, achievement.
