As if there were any question about who held the modern-day astrophysics badass crown, the first trailer for Neil deGrasse's Tyson's reboot of Carl Sagan's Cosmos series looks absolutely incredible.
Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, originally aired as a thirteen-part television series in 1980 that saw Carl Sagan elucidating the mysteries of the universe and life's origins for a mass audience. Though the original was and is still fantastic, the show does look dated at this point, and modern public is used to a little more, say, flare in their space CGI. But from the looks of the trailer, Neil deGrasse Tyson is more than answering that call. The new, also 13-part series will be airing on Fox sometime in Spring of 2014. For now, though, we'll just have to occupy ourselves with wondering about some the clip's more confusing bits, such as—oh, deGrasse Tyson's foray into Gladiator-wheat-field reenactments, for instance.
