Cosmos: A Space/Time Odyssey Trailer

Professor Brian Cox is probably watching this going, “Amazing!” The original Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, hosted by legendary TV scientist Carl Sagan, was a landmark piece of US telly in 1980 – an epic science documentary given a little sci-fi spit and polish to get people who wouldn’t normally watch science documentaries glued to the box.

Now, astrophysicist (who was at one point mentored by Sagan) Neil deGrasse Tyson has teamed up with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and Sagan’s widow Ann Druyan to create a new version of the show. And it looks more sci-fi than ever (we presume there will be some real science in it…).

The show is due to air in the US next year.
