Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey - 1x01 Standing Up in the Milky Way

Standing Up in the Milky Way

More than three decades after the debut of Carl Sagan’s groundbreaking and iconic series, “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage,” it’s time once again to set sail for the stars. Host and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson sets off on the Ship of the Imagination to discover earth’s Cosmic Address and its coordinates in space and time. Viewers meet Renaissance Italy’s Giordano Bruno, who had a spiritual epiphany about the infinite expanse of the universe.

Then, Tyson walks across the Cosmic Calendar, on which all of time has been compressed into a year-at-a-glance calendar, from the Big Bang to the moment humans first make their appearance on the planet.

Neil could read a telephone book to me, and I'd find it fascinating. This is pretty cool. I can already foresee certain religious people being furious with this though, and probably thinking it's demonizing the Catholic Church with the Giovani Bruno stuff (although they did a pretty damn good job of doing that to themselves).

It's kind of incredible that Fox, a network, was willing to put this on their air with a full season ordered before this even aired, and on Sundays in Primetime, no less. They deserve a lot of credit for that.
