Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is an educational, science-based television show that explores the universe from the smallest atom to the largest quasar. Host Neil deGrasse Tyson channels his mentor, the late Carl Sagan, in this reboot of a classic 1980s educational show. It has been produced by Seth McFarlane and broadcast on both Fox and the National Geographic Channel. Tyson travels through space in a computer generated spaceship that can move effortlessly through the Milky Way Galaxy and bend the laws of physics to reach the outer limits of the known universe. In the vast expanse of space, the show attempts to reveal how small the Earth and the entirety of human existence is in comparison to the grand scale of everything around us with the help of an original soundtrack written by Alan Silvestri. Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey replicates the unique mix of science and philosophy that Sagan was so famous for. It explores the scientists that discovered the physical laws that govern our universe, the methods they used to overcome the scientific understandings of their time and the thoughts and theories that current scientists are working to prove.
