More than 30 years ago, PBS had a hit with Carl Sagan’s often trippy Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, a show that brought the mysteries of the universe to life for millions. In fact, until 1990 when PBS debuted The Civil War, it was the most watched program in the history of public broadcasting. Space might never have been cooler, save for that time we first walked on the moon (which coincidentally happened 44-years ago this weekend).
In the spring of 2014, now-famous man of science Neil deGrasse Tyson will produce and host a show that will carry on Sagan’s legacy, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. The Fox and National Geographic-produced show will have a 13-episode first season run and will a modern version of Sagan’s spacecraft, modern effects and further exploration of our universe – from the molecular level to the deepest reaches of space. At Comic-Con this weekend, Fox debuted the show’s first trailer, which you can watch just after the jump.
