    I saw some of the first episode of the new Cosmos on the internet and it’s fantastic. I got tired of the video hanging and decided to just buy the episode from Amazon. Waiting for it to load and can’t wait to watch it.

    Yeah, Degrasse’s new “Cosmos” is true to the original and well worth watching, which isn’t surprising, considering Carl Sagan’s wife is heavily involved.

    I bought the first episode from Amazon for three dollars and it looks terrific in HD!

    Oh, Oh. Religionists still don’t like being exposed. The series obviously isn’t going to hide from the trouble religion caused for science from the beginning. True to Carl Sagan’s original series.

    Watch your back Tyson.

    UPDATE: Neil deGrasse Tyson Is Really Starting To Scare Conservatives

    What is interesting—and threatening—about “Cosmos” is it asserts interconnectedness of science. Evolution and the “big bang” theory are inseparable, and knowing how old and vast the universe is makes it much, much easier to understand how evolution works.

    This runs strongly counter to the conservative approach to science. Conservatives don’t want to be perceived as anti-science, so they claim a general support for it and then just suddenly and coincidentally have “reservations” about science that runs against their political interests. So you have people who wouldn’t dare dream of saying that physics as a field is wrong, but somehow still manage to convince themselves the that laws of physics are suddenly suspended when they point to the conclusion of man-made climate change.

    I’ve got the second episode of “Cosmos” all cued up and ready to go. I plan to watch this weekend.

    Episode two is better then the first one! Tyson is awesome!

    If you’re not watching, you should commit Hari Kari.

    creationists upset that deGrasse Tyson left them out of the cosmos thingee.

    I heard him laugh in their face on Colbert/Stewart.

    Tyson is everywhere, all the time!

    I can’t see a problem with Carl Sagan rising from the grave.
