Nerds the universe over are typing about it: Ultra suave sexypants astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will host a reboot of Carl Sagan's famous 1980sCosmos
series. According to this he will wear many suits, walk into tunnels of light and experience several epic explosions. Rad.
This trailer is so amazing it makes up for biggest nerdy let-downs since the original Cosmos became star stuff: Pluto's demotion; still no Mars; and the fourth season of Battlestar Galactica.
It's slated to air (weirdly) on Fox in spring 2014, which is also around the time Dallas gets that badass robot opera. Get excited.
