‘Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey’ Will Breathe New Life Into Sagan’s Vision

Phil Plait (@BadAstronomer on Twitter): “For those questioning the idea of ‪#‎Cosmos‬ airing on Fox and not PBS, please read this.”

We live in a time when the denial of reality is as prevalent (or more) than the acceptance of it. Much of that denial comes from a provincial view of the Universe, a narrowly constrained frame of mind that not just disallows but actively discourages doubt, questions, exploration, and freedom of discovery. The original Cosmos was all about those things, and not in a dry, documentary style, but from a very human viewpoint. This is why Cosmos endures, and why it needs to continue for a new generation.
