More than three decades after the debut of Carl Sagan’s exploration of the universe in Cosmos: A Personal Voyage comes its successor Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.
Sagan’s original creative collaborators Ann Druyan and astronomer Steven Soter have teamed up with producer Seth MacFarlane to bring this masterpiece back to life. Presented by renowned astrophysicist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson aboard the original Ship of Imagination, he takes us on a voyage through the entire life of the universe.
With the use of CGI, Cosmos explains the complexities of our universe, exhibits its unrivalled beauty and revels in its indescribable fascination. As with the legendary original series, the new documentary is the saga of how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time.
The series brings to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge, transporting viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest – and the smallest – scale. The series invents new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts are presented with stunning clarity, uniting scepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.
Step aboard the Ship of Imagination on Sunday March the 16th at 7pm on the National Geographic Channel.
