New 'Cosmos' Series in the Works

'Family Guy' Creator Part of 'Cosmos' Update

Hearing this news just made my day. The enchanting 'Cosmos' series narrated by the timeless Carl Sagan will be given a facelift and will explore the more recent discoveries and current understandings of the universe and will be hosted by Neil DeGrasse Tyson! Neil is the perfect choice to carry the torch of scientific understanding to the masses and be the new narrator for this series, which will air sometime in 2013 on Fox. Seth MacFarlane, creator of the popular 'Family Guy' tv show among others will help produce the show along with Sagan's widow, Ann Dryan, who contributed in the original series. This will be fantastic and the reason the show will be on Fox as opposed to something the science channel or discovery channel is that, as with the original 'Cosmos', they are trying to appeal to a much wider audience to generate more interest in science and astrophysics and the universe. What a fantastic idea and I will be waiting impatiently to see the new series when it comes out! I can think of no better tribute to one of our world's most incredible ambassadors, Carl Sagan.


  1. Yeah Carl Sagan!!! I cried when I watched this clip. So refreshing to have true perspective broadcast on National Television!!

    thanks for posting! I love your blog!

  2. The older I get, the more I appreciate Carl Sagan. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is my favorite choice for this because he seems like a modern-day Sagan in many respects... I am really looking forward to this!
