Until the New 'Cosmos' Comes ...

I'm atwitter. My excitement at the news that "Cosmos" is going to be updated by Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Seth MacFarlane keeps me shaking with anticipation, or perhaps that's my caffeine addiction.

There never was a show so deep, so insightful, so transformative as "Cosmos." Carl Sagan literally changed the way we look at the world. And he did it by telling the remarkable story of the universe and our relationship to it in a way that is every bit as compelling as the best creation myths of the world's best religion. Only this story, as explained by Sagan, is so much better because it's not made up. 

The only thing that could make this re-boot better than the original is if Seth MacFarlane adds poop jokes.

Until then, here's a brilliant and beautiful little clip with Sagan. Watch it once a week to remind yourself how cool it is to be alive.
