"Cosmos," hosted by famed astronomer Carl Sagan, was undoubtedly a hit when it aired on PBS in 1980. The show is returning to TV right here on FOX 32!
Space: Not the galaxy far far away, not the final frontier, but just, space. It was the topic of the 13-part television series "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage," which was, at the time, the most widely watched series in the history of American public television.
The new series will dive into the wonder and skepticism of everything we know – and more importantly, everything we don't know – about what's really out there.
Good Day Chicago's Jake Hamilton got to sit down with new host and world-famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and Sagan's widow Ann Druyan, the new show's producer. They said that 34 years after the original series, there's still plenty to talk about.
Tyson, who made headlines last year when he live-tweeted his furious opinions about the hit film "Gravity," said that whether it's the reality of "Cosmos" or the fiction of a Hollywood blockbuster, he supports it all.
So now, as we continue to look up, the re-boot of cosmos can be seen right here on FOX 32 in the coming weeks. It's here to teach us that there's more to space than a galaxy far, far away - more than the final frontier. In space, there's more than we ever imagined.
