As many of you have probably heard by now, Cosmos is coming back to television. FOX has just announced that, sometime in 2014, Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey, will hit the airwaves. This time, the series will be hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, working with original creators Ann Druyan and Steven Soter with Seth MacFarlane of Family Guy fame producing. While MacFarlane may seem like an odd fit, he is actually a personal friend of Ann Druyan, a childhood fan of Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, and an advocate of space travel. He also personally provided the funding to have 800 boxes of Sagan's notes and letters preserved in the Library of Congress. It was through MacFarlane's clout with FOX Network that Druyan was able to meet the network heads and get the series approved.
The aim of the show, much like the original series, will be to introduce a general audience to the wonders of science. Tyson has stated that his intention is not to teach textbook science, which won't stick with many people after the show, but to present science in a way that has meaning and that can influence the audience's conduct in their everyday life. And, rest assured, he has confirmed that “vehicles of storytelling” in the same vein as Sagan's Spaceship of the Imagination will be used.
