{"title":"Cosmos: A Personal Voyage","dateDebut":"1980","dateEnd":"1980","description":"Cosmos: A Personal Voyage is an educational television series written and narrated by astronomer and writer Carl Sagan in 1980, and was also published in book form. It is best known for its presentation of a wide variety of scientific topics \u2014 astronomy, physics, biology, evolution, environmentalism, nuclear power, and more \u2014 in Layman's Terms, making both the wonder and the terminology accessible to the public. It also had cutting edge special effects for the time it was produced.\n\nThe series has been credited with inspiring an entire generation of scientists and formed a template for nearly every mainstream science program that followed. It was re-released as a DVD collection with commentary by Sagan, mainly to discuss where Science Marches On. Even today, it remains remarkably relevant; although some of the facts are dated, the majority of the principles and theories discussed by the show remain intact.\n\nIn 2014 a new series produced by the same development team as the original aired called \"Cosmos: A Sapcetime Odyssey\". The series aired on Fox and was hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson.","leadImageMedUrl":"http:\/\/distro-1.retrojunk.com\/secure\/fdca83febf054335f46af1ded7aa7b3c829b2bb9f51609860036062d634c13143ea54a\/image\/13b1343ddd9b871e77663fcd7f7d6bbf_md.jpg"}
