A Way For To Cosmos To Know Itself,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carl Sagan's Cosmos [DVD]  (DVD)
Carl Sagan was one of those rare individuals who could entrall as well as educate. He quite simply broke science out of the cloister of self righteous 'learned' people to involve everyone. His genius was the ability to impart the fundamental truths of the cosmos and science in general, whilst he himself remained grounded and approachable. I was 14 when the 'Cosmos' series was first shown in Ireland, and I was quite simply mesmerised. This very welcome DVD release has the episodes in full, most lasting 1 hour with the updates. Some of the original music score from 1980 has been replaced because of rights issues, but previously unreleased Vangelis music helps soften that blow.
