COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey, currently broadcast Sunday nights on FOX and Monday nights on National Geographic Channel, is one of the most audacious and innovative series about science ever on television. Host and renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has used the Ship of the Imagination to spectacularly transport viewers to the bottom of a dewdrop and the farthest reaches of the universe as he explores humanity’s quest for greater knowledge. James Poniewozik of Time has written of COSMOS: “It's gorgeous, it’s absorbing, it’s impassioned, it’s awestruck and awe-inspiring.” The Paley Center will preview the final episode of this landmark series, “Unafraid of the Dark,” which surveys some of the biggest discoveries that await us. After the screening, host Tyson, with executive producers Ann Druyan, Mitchell Cannold, and Brannon Braga, will discuss how they used the latest digital technology and scientific research to expand Carl Sagan’s original vision.
