Are you watching 'Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey' currently airing Sundays at 9 PM EST on FOX and on Mondays at 9 PM EST on the National Geographic Channel? The new series hosted by Neil DeGrasse Tyson is a re-tool of Carl Sagan's 'Cosmos: A Personal Voyage' from 1980.
Episode 4 is titled "A Sky Full of Ghosts." It tells the story of 19th century British astronomer Sir William Herschel. He discovered the planet Uranus in 1809 and presented the concept that telescopes are in essence time machines. And guess who Cosmos cast as the voice of this revolutionary scientist? None other that Patrick Stewart, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Be sure to catch this intriguing episode featuring Patrick Stewart tonight (Sunday, March 30th) on FOX at 9 pm EST and tomorrow (Monday, March 31st) at 9 pm on National Geographic Channel featuring expanded footage.
Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey is a fantastic series not to be missed.
