During last night’s Game 3 of the World Series, FOX released the first promotional trailer for Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey.
Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey is a sequel to Carl Sagan’s eighties series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. The new Cosmos is produced by Seth MacFarlane and is hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
“Never more than at this moment in the modern era have we needed a profound reminder of the colossally important and exciting role that science, space exploration and the human quest for knowledge must continue to play in our development as a species,” said MacFarlane. “We should be vigorously exploring the solar system by now, and who better to inspire us to get there than Ann Druyan, Steven Soter, Neil deGrasse Tyson and, of course, Carl Sagan.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson has most recently been in the news because of his criticism of the hit movie Gravity, but he is well-known in the comic book community for having weighed in on such things as Thor’s hammer and Superman’s home world of Krypton.
Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey premieres next spring on Fox and the National Geographic Channel. Check out the promo trailer for the 13-part docu-series series below.
