These future scientists are over the moon for ‘Cosmos’
Neil deGrasse Tyson’s new series premiered Sunday night, and it’s already a hit with a younger audience.
Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey premiered Sunday night, and it’s already starting to inspire future scientists.
The Neil deGrasse Tyson–helmed series brings a sense of nostalgia for those who have seen the original documentary series from Carl Sagan. For the younger set, not only are parents allowing them to stay up past their bedtime to watch it, they’re learning that we are all made of star stuff.

The entertaining and educational show is getting people excited about science and space exploration again, and nobody embodies that more than Delilah.
She’s enchanted by everything she sees, and she can barely contain that excitement or sit down while she’s watching. (Wait for her to scream, “It’s the moon!”) And she actually knows her stuff, even if some of the concepts might not make sense to her until she’s older.
Cosmos was very much a family affair, and even with just one episode it’s already creating a bond that these kids will remember for years, just like many of the parents had when the original series aired. Cosmos is definitely on board for this one.

We’re all children of the cosmos, no matter what age we are.
