“COSMOS: A Space-Time Odyssey” Redefines the Universe

With the advent of man’s latest technology in exploration and research, the last few decades has brought man with overwhelming discoveries in the vast reaches of the universe. There are new discoveries about the galaxies and outer space that are mind boggling; weird stuff that we only knew in fiction movies before. 

When I was in grade school in the late 70’s, I had the opportunity to visit the local planetarium in Manila where we experienced seeing a replica of the galaxy with constellations and all the stars and planets. At that time, Pluto was still a planet but now it's not as experts voted that it is just a big moon. 

As man is able to come up with new ways to discover new things about outer space, the curiosity allows him to want for more knowledge beyond what’s out there. In the 70’s in order for a man to become an astronaut, one should be at least an Air Force pilot with an engineering degree. Now, a simple civilian can already get the opportunity to become an astronaut without having those technical skills in order to explore outer space.

Very recently, news broke about the next space shuttle mission that will allow the first Filipino to experience the vastness of the cosmos. And these developments just happened in the last 40 years! Imagine the many other things man can do tomorrow. 

This month, National Geographical Channel (NGC) and FOX will be featuring another mind blowing documentary series about the universe and beyond. Its called COSMOS: a Space-Time Odyssey. The 13 episodes series is actually a sequel of the popular TV series in the 80’s COSMOS: A Personal Voyage, which was written and hosted by Carl Sagan.

The new COSMOS series will feature new discoveries and will disprove old theories about the universe and all the things in it. The new COSMOS will be hosted by Mr. Neil deGrasse Tyson who will feature a new imaginary space craft while he expound the secrets of the universe in a new mode of storytelling. The producer of this scientific mini series is a man, very unlikely to pursue such a project. He is no other than Mr. Seth Mcfarlane, the very talented voice comedian that brought us the Family Guy

COSMOS: A Space-Time Odyssey will launch its premier telecast on March 12, 2014 at 10PM on NGC and FOX channels simultaneously. The new COSMOS series will definitely raise the bar in three dimensional animation that will bring audiences to new heights in education and entertainment.
