What We Are Watching Today: Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey

“Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” is a science documentary television series unlike anything you might have seen before. Originally broadcast in 2014, it is presented by astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, who hops on board a “Ship of Imagination” to take viewers on a 13-episode journey across time and space.

The show is a follow-up to the renowned 1980 series “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage,” which was presented by the late Carl Sagan. The 2014 version follows a very similar structure, but has been updated to include new information and discoveries made in the 34 years since its predecessor debuted, along with the latest production techniques and much better narration.

Cosmos is the perfect show for the family to watch together as it is entertaining, educational and thought-provoking. It covers a wide range of topics, from the origins of life itself to humanity’s place in the universe.
