Today let's look back to one of the most popular and classic science documentaries of all time - Cosmos with Carl Sagan. But firstly let's look at some history behind this charming documentary.
Cosmos: A Personal Voyage is a thirteen-part television series written by Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan and Steve Soter, with Sagan as presenter. It covered a wide range of scientific themes, including the origin of life and our place in the universe.
Ever since 1978 when Cosmos was produced it became famous for groundbreaking special effects and memorable soundtracks (including music by Vangelis). However, the real show stealer was Carl Sagan, who is one of only a few scientists who were truly popular outside the world of science. He was a truly amazing scholar who had an extraordinary passion for science and a talent to pass it to the wide audience.
The show had 13 episodes covering a variety of subjects including planets, stars, universe formation, science in our society, evolution and others.
