Sunday - Saying Yes to the World

The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the Cosmos and our place within it, explorations that are exhilarating to consider. They remind us that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is prerequisite to survival. I believe our future depends on how well we know this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky.
Carl Sagan, Cosmos

This evening, the first episode of Cosmos airs on Fox and the National Geographic channel at  9:00 pm, and the thirteen episodes of this magnificent updated series are hosted by Neil DeGrasse Tyson  Watch it, and get ready to be amazed.

I just taped one of the reruns while I was exercising this morning and loved watching it!

Yes, Yes, Yes :) I plan on watching it with sheer delight :) Here in Colorado USA it is on Fox at 8pm Mountain Time. I believe it is a brand new "sequel series" not a rerun of the first "Cosmos" - although am sure there will be segments taken from the first... Whatever the case it should be *marvelous* :) Thanks!
