Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is a documentary television series which will be shown on the National Geographic Channel (NGC) and FOX.  It's actually a follow-up to the 1980 TV Series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage hosted by Carl Sagan. The new series is produced by Seth MacFarlane and will premiere on March 9, 2013 with a total of 13 episodes on its first season.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson narrates the show.
Seth MacFarlane, the producer of this big project is a fan and enthusiast of astronomy and astrophysics. He was dead serious and teamed up with Carl Sagan’s original collaborators Ann Druyan and Steven Soter to make sure that they stayed true to Sagan's vision. In the new version, they also made certain updates and revealed new insights about the universe. The will will also use new modes of scientific storytelling to communicate the ideas that have helped build our identity within the vastness of space and re-inventing elements of the original series, such as the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination.

During the launch, Curator Ms. Maria Isabel Garcia expressed how she couldn't be more happy and more proud that National Geographic chose The Mind Museum as the place for their TV show launch. They also presented the Nationa Geographic Viewing Pod. Inside you can watch the best of the NGC shows which will be up soon!

Nationa Geographic Viewing Pod
In a nutshell. Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey tells us how human beings developed their concept of the laws of nature and their place in the universe. It offers a grand view of the cosmos as it covers their pursuit of knowledge and the ever-expanding boundaries of astrophysics. 

After a few introduction we headed to the viewing room at the second floor to watch the first episode of the series. 

The media who attended the launch was able to have an exclusive viewing of the first episode and it was just mind boggling. The experience was amazing, beautifully narrated and the visuals was so helpful. It certainly did sparked my interest in the fields of astrophysics and cosmology. I've always been interested in these things and this show is really something that I would enjoy watching. A show that is eye opening and educational too! I can't wait what more they can come up with in the coming episodes.



Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey premieres on March 12, 2014 at 10 PM on National Geographic Channel and FOX. Be sure to tune in to witness a groundbreaking television event!
