Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey
Hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cosmos will explore how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. It will bring to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and transport viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale. Cosmos will invent new modes of scientific storytelling to reveal the grandeur of the universe and re-invent celebrated elements of the legendary original series, including the Cosmic Calendar and the Ship of the Imagination. The most profound scientific concepts will be presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.
This mini-series is not just about the space, but about the evolution of the Earth, its kinds, scientific discoveries of our civilization, scientists, structure of matters for atomic-scale, DNA, genetics and many other things. In the course of the show the viewer will travel on a virtual spaceship looking into the far future and returning back to the remote past. He will fearlessly approach the stars and unexpectedly diminish to the size of a cell. Visual imagery of the series is splendid, since thanks to the computer graphics the storytelling becomes more attractive. The material is delivered rather easily and clearly, therefore the movie will embrace the wider spectrum of the targeted audience. The episodes should not be obligatorily watched in a chronological sequence, they are autonomous enough. The leading role is allotted to the American astrophysicist and physicist Neil Tyson. This instructive and picturesque series is definitively worth watching for all ages!Read more »
