‘Cosmos’ Has People Psyched about Space, View NASA’s ‘Images of a Space-Time Odyssey’
The science documentary television series, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey series premiered on March 9, 2014, simultaneously in the US across ten 21st Century Fox networks. The show was presented by Neil deGrasse Tyson and a follow-up to the 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which was presented by Carl Sagan, the executive producers are Seth MacFarlane and Ann Druyan, Sagan’s widow. According to the Huffington Post, the new TV series has science enthusiasts massively excited.
Neil deGrasse Tyson worded his statements so carefully and with such clarity that if one listened closely to all he said, there were no concrete and arrogant claims as to this is this and that is that; in regards to life’s origin specifically. It was a glimpse into the mind of a man who understands that he knows he does not know; yet has studied the science to such a degree that his hypothesis and conclusions are more than educated guesses and / or calculations. Astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson’s carefully worded analogies through the application of his studies were of such specificity that the verbiage used could not be misconstrued as to alter the context of his statements; thus alter or “spin” if you will, what he said out of his intended points. I don’t buy into anyone who makes a solid assumption without either two things; faith or scientific evidence. Tyson brought both of these to the table in a manner that left the door open on science and spirituality that leaves one to understand that no one person knows everything or has all definite answers to certain issues in regard to how, what and why, we are.
The folks at NASA welcomed the 13-part series Cosmos by releasing a brilliant new gallery of space photos on Flickr. Monster solar flares, the beautiful remnants of dying stars and tremendous stellar explosions are only some of the amazing images in the gallery of 30 that NASA has shared.
