Lara Meier Staff Writer @MsLaraMeierCOSMOS IS BACK!!! You read right: the long-missed science program is coming back to our screens on FOX with host Neil deGrasse Tyson. The newly-revived program is titled Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. It has been a long time since Cosmos last aired. Most of you might not even be as old as its prior iteration, just like me. Nevertheless, this is most definitely a reason for everyone to party. So for those of you who are not old enough to know of this show, I will break it down for you very quickly: Ann Druyan, who created, wrote and also produced the original Cosmos, was in the show herself with her husband Carl Sagan. These two tried to bring science into everybody's home. To find out new things and to reveal them to the world as entertainingly, imaginatively and scientifically as possible, was their aim. As Ann Druyan says, “ (Cosmos is) “a science-based exploration of the known universe”. She now also works as a writer on the new version of Cosmos and promises that they will be going to places nobody in the show (or out of it) has ever been. The show has always utilized special effects, which were amazing, but believe me when I tell you this: visual effects developed a lot in the past few decades, so we can only expect even more groundbreaking scenes! There will also be voiceovers by celebrities just like Patrick Stewart, Kirsten Dunst and Richard Geere. The show is premiered Sunday at 9 PM on Fox, and will continue at this timeslot for the foreseeable future. Set your alarm clocks! Also, if you cannot wait any longer, Carl Sagan wrote a book on the same topics called – wait for it - Cosmos (SURPRISE!). It is a great read for anyone, whether they liked the show back in the day, are newly-introduced to it, and for every other science-nerd, if they like to be entertained by reading about their passion that is science. Are you watching it??
