In the spring of 2014, Neil deGrasse Tyson will produce (along with Seth MacFarlane, natch) and host a show, ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey’, that will carry on Carl Sagan’s legacy.
Airing on Fox and produced jointly with National Geographic, the show will have a 13-episode first season run. Further, it will be a modern version of Sagan’s influential PBS show from the 1970s and hopefully make the exploration of our universe — from the molecular level to the deepest reaches of space — cool again.
My hope is that the show continues to make science cool and further, helps curb the growing anti-science movement in America. [via FSR]
