Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey
Hosted by renowned astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cosmos continues from its 1980 predecessor, exploring how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. It brings to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and transports viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale. The most profound scientific concepts are presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, weaving rigorous science with emotion and spirituality to form a single, united, transcendent experience.
This mini-series is not just about the space, but about the evolution of the Earth, its kinds, scientific discoveries of our civilization, scientists, structure of matters for atomic-scale, DNA, genetics and many other things. In the course of the show the viewer will travel on a virtual spaceship looking into the far future and returning back to the remote past. He will fearlessly approach the stars and unexpectedly diminish to the size of a cell. Visual imagery of the series is splendid, since thanks to the computer graphics the storytelling becomes more attractive. The material is delivered rather easily and clearly, therefore the movie will embrace the wider spectrum of the targeted audience. The episodes should not be obligatorily watched in a chronological sequence, they are autonomous enough. The leading role is allotted to the American astrophysicist and physicist Neil Tyson. This instructive and picturesque series is definitively worth watching for all ages!Read more »
