OMG to Infinity: Trailer for Neil deGrasse Tyson's new Cosmos Reboot

Categories: Nerdery

Nerds the universe over are typing about it: Ultra suave sexypants astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will host a reboot of Carl Sagan's famous 1980s Cosmos series. According to this he will wear many suits, walk into tunnels of light and experience several epic explosions. Rad.

This trailer is so amazing it makes up for biggest nerdy let-downs since the original Cosmos became star stuff: Pluto's demotion; still no Mars; and the fourth season of Battlestar Galactica.

It's slated to air (weirdly) on Fox in spring 2014, which is also around the time Dallas gets that badass robot opera. Get excited.

Given this is going to air on Fox, are we to understand that this is designed to scare the bejesus out of Christian fundamentalists who are deathly afraid of science?  Science, after all, means "progress" and "progress" is the root word of "progressive". 

And as long as we're talking about Fox here, where is the groundswell demanding Gretchen Carlson doff that "shameful" Soviet Red dress and opt for the bonnet and bustle?  And what about those "Satanic" commercials advertising "demonic machines" we know as pick-up trucks? 

Can you say "auto da fey? 


Ohhhhhhh, I'm right there with you!! All you have to say is *Cosmos* Reboot followed by Neil deGrasse Tyson! I love everything having to do with the sky, space, and NdGT! And that trailer is stunning. At the end, I found I was holding my breath the entire time. ... OK, maybe not the entire time. ;-)
