Are you ready? Because Carl Sagan, astrophysicist, author, and arbiter of science education, is about to hit you with some profound science knowledge. This man is the master of bringing the cosmos down to a human level. In fact, he hosted a 13-part series called Cosmos: A Personal Voyage to help mortals fall in love with the universe that surrounds them.
There's a sequel to Carl's original science show — Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which is hosted by the Internet's favorite tweeting astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and airs Sunday nights on Fox. But there's a lot of reasons why you should watch the original Cosmos, too. Even though it's been over 30 years since the show first aired, the science is more relevant than ever. You can even watch the whole thing on YouTube.
So, go ahead: scroll down then jump right in to Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.
