Cosmos Remake Coming To Fox In 2014 193

TheSync writes "The long-awaited remake of Carl Sagan's amazing Cosmos series, Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey, will be coming to Fox television next year. It will star astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Surprisingly, Seth MacFarlane of Family Guy fame is an executive producer. MacFarlane was introduced to Carl Sagan's widow Ann Druyan by deGrasse Tyson, and MacFarlane helped them pitch the show to Fox executives."

    Astrophysics has really advanced since 1980.

    True, and the show also covered much more than Astrophysics. For example its claims that the brain operates using symbolic logic seem dated, since these days we would say the brain is more about statistics. It also covered evolutionary biology and microbiology, fields which have progressed tremendously in recent decades.

    I suppose that's the problem when one tries to cover such a broad subject as the Cosmos ;)
