My opinion on Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard about the famous scientific TV show. Basically a reboot of Carl Sagan’s, this time hosted by the famous (and loved by the scientific community) astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

The first line of the first episode was, in my opinion, a warning for the religious watching.

The cosmos is all there is, or ever was, or ever will be. — Carl Sagan

A show beginning with this quote will definitely recognize The Big Bang and evolution as valid scientific theories.
They are anyway, right?

The show was definitely based on teaching the scientific theories, methods and philosophies. Inspiring young children to love science, spreading the importance of evidence during scientific research and rejecting subjectivity while doing so.

Neil mentions global warming (they actually made an episode just for that), and how we are definitely the main cause. He showed the evidence necessary to confirm it. Along the way, he showed us what happened to Venus which is now a hot desert.

Straight the point, I loved the show. Absolutely loved it. I would (figuratively) kill for a second season. Neil was definitely the guy for the mission, he’s the Bill Nye for advanced science. I definitely learned a lot while watching the show. The animations and the way stories were told were absolutely amazing. Satisfying my science-loving instinct.
