TV show description:      
This documentary series is a follow-up to Carl Sagan’s 1980 television series, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. Executive produced by Seth MacFarlane and Ann Druyan (Sagan’s widow), this version is hosted by renowned astrophysicist Doctor Neil deGrasse Tyson.

The series follows how humans discovered the laws of nature and found coordinates in space and time. The series brings to life never-before-told stories of the 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.

Series Finale:     
Episode #13 — Unafraid of the Dark
The Ship of the Imagination makes a final journey to explore one of the biggest mysteries of the universe: dark energy. One of science’s greatest unsung heroes is Fritz Zwicky whose prediction of supernovas paved the way for our larger understanding of dark energy — the unknown force in the universe that overwhelms gravity on the grandest scale. On the final voyage, viewers discover the romantic message embedded in Voyager’s Interstellar Golden Record and contemplate the spiritual experience of life on Earth. The cosmic journey concludes with Carl Sagan’s memorable meditation, The Pale Blue Dot.
First aired: June 8, 2014.

  1. Evolution is NOT science says

    Glad to hear that the linguistic vomit and utter scientifically illiterate nonsense that was Cosmos has come to an end. Good to officially hear that train wreck has been cancelled. Perhaps Neil can start another quote fabrication scandal in his free time.

    Please bring back Cosmos. It is so informative. We need that. Also, Bones, Sleepy Hollow, Gotham are all good. The Following is good yet gruesome. Last Man on Earth
    has potential. I keep waiting for Cosmos to return. Is there a chance?

  3. Neal says

    COSMOS is wonderful and necessary! Besides being fabulously interesting, it is important for society to be reminded of what real science is, why it is important, and what makes the information reliable!

    I thought the new Cosmos stunk. I saw the Sagan series. Am not Bible thumper but thought new one still stunk. I believe in evolution etc.

    PLEASE do not cancel this show. It’s one of the few things that doesn’t make me feel gross after watching it. Like I actually benefited from my time watching t.v instead of losing brain cells and feeling embarrassed to be a part of the human species. This show is top notch and It would be sad if it gets cancelled. I can see this series becoming a standard in the high school science classrooms on movie day.

    Comos is a dynamic science program. It appeals to all ages: high school, college and university; and, the general population. It has great graphics and current science information. Most important, Dr. Tyson does an outstanding job delivering a complicated cosmology message to the common and unscientific minds — like me.

    This programs’ presentation and quality is unsurpassed. We enjoyed the original with Dr.Sagan. We enjoy Dr. deGrasse Tysons program. Though fundamentalist Christians objected those of us with an open mind accepted this program as informative and delightful. It was also educational for children. Keep this program on television!!
