From 'cosmos' to 'cosmos'
The Rev. Jonathan Stott, S.J., professor of physics, considered Fox and National Geographic's new series "Cosmos" starring Neil DeGrasse Tyson and the original series that ran in the 1970s starring Carl Sagan. "To my mind, the real issue is that where Sagan wanted 'Cosmos' to introduce everyone to our marvelous universe, Tyson's remake is a triumphalist exaltation of the power of science, and this is the true poverty of the new 'Cosmos.'"
