Ann Druyan — the amazing lady who has co-written, produced and directed both the original (1980s) and today’s “Cosmos” series.
“We may be little but we don’t think small. It’s the courage of questions, of grasping our true circumstances, and not pretending we are at the center of it all, that is adulthood. That’s being a grownup. Nothing in the cosmos diminishes the profundity of life and love. This show is a celebration of life in the universe.”
"We took a big, big hit when we lost Carl Sagan…here was a man of science who was regularly in the public eye. He used to appear on "The Johnny Carson Show" alongside big stars like Harrison Ford, Bill Cosby … and he belonged in the spotlight. He was a great popularizer of science, a man who understood that scientific advancement is something that affects us all on a daily basis, whether we’re aware of it or not." - Seth MacFarlane, Producer, COSMOS: A Space Time Odyssey
