The big premiere of Cosmos is tonight, but we should take a moment to look back and see just why it is such an important program and relive one of the big influences on current host Neil deGrasse Tyson. I’m talking of course about Carl Sagan, the great mind at the helm of the original program.
This video comes from the hall of Reddit and YouTube user XXXSDESDEXXX who has plenty of Sagan clips if you feel the need. Sagan’s influence on deGrasse Tyson’s career is well known, so it would be worth a glance at the past to sort of compare it to the current product and see where it all originates.
Also Carl Sagan is just an interesting guy that we lost too soon. So enjoy this look and enjoy Cosmos tonight.
