Plot Synopsis

Before the world premiere of COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY, Nat Geo aired a two-day marathon of the original COSMOS series on Saturday,, March 8, 2014 from Noon-6pm ET/PT and Sunday, March 9, 2014 from Noon-7pm ET/PT. The original series, COSMOS: A PERSONAL VOYAGE, first premiered in September 1980 on PBS, and for 10 years was the most watched series ever on public television in America. Based on host Dr. Carl Sagan's book of the same name -- and written for television by Sagan, Ann Druyan and Steven Soter -- the series was an iconic exploration of the universe as revealed by science, taking viewers through a galaxy of topics to help explain the universe and humanity's place in it. Sagan brought science into the mainstream by explaining complex theories in a way that everyone could comprehend and appreciate. Among the areas explored are the life cycle of stars, genetics, laws of planetary motion, the journey to Mars, the search for intelligent life beyond Earth and the big bang theory.
