Four years ago, the resurrection of the iconic documentary series Cosmos in which astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson took over the role of popularizer of his Eruditic elder Carl Sagan, sometimes struck us as odd Remake a series to deliver excellent results – we promise you, it is still exceptional. We reveled in the magnificent planetary images told by the calm voice of the astrophysicist, without noticing the time, with a sandwich in our hands that plunged into the history of the solar system. Good news for astrophysics fans: Cosmos returns to our screens next year with Possible Worlds, a new season filmed on the edge of knowledge.
Earlier this year, Fox gave us a glimpse of the coming season, and we wanted much, much more. A few months later, the network unveiled a proper trailer for Possible Worlds that took the discoverers of traditional science out of their comfort zone. Unlike the original series and its remake, this new season will be decidedly speculative, reflecting on the possibilities of extraterrestrial life, dreaming of plans to colonize the Solar System and bringing science to the hypothetical "paradoxical realities "- without crossing the border into the scientific WTF, we hope.
Meanwhile, the network has also suggested that Possible Worlds will bring together the infinitely large and the infinitely small (one of the themes of the original) program) by, for example, exploring the workings of butterfly wings. Finally, the show will take a meta-hagiographic twist by looking at the early years of … Carl Sagan, the wonderful astrophysic popularizer and first host of the series. The new season will be released in spring 2019 – there is no specific date yet – and is good news for science, especially in the US. We can not wait to board the elongated spaceship of Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
