President Obama introduces new TV show 'Cosmos'
Inspiring the next generation of scientists and explorers
"America has always been a nation of fearless explorers who dream bigger and reach farther than others imagine," President Obama said as he presented the premiere episode of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey on Fox Networks Group Channels.
In the company's surprise TV announcement, the president encourages his audience to start exploring the world we live in and what's beyond it, "Today we’re doing everything we can to bring that same sense of possibility to a new generation, because there are new frontiers to explore and we need Americans eager to explore them."
The new programme is airing three decades after the debut of Sagan's Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, an iconic exploration of the universe uncovered by science. The latest 13 part-series was created by Seth MacFarlane (creator of Family Guy) and Sagan’s original creative collaborators, hoping to revive Cosmos, which has been seen by more than 750 million viewers worldwide, remaining popular to this day.
