Preview of new 'Cosmos' series on FOX

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is taking viewers on a wild ride in the new FOX series, 'Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.'

The 13-part docu-series follows in the footsteps of the Carl Sagan documentaries about the cosmos more than three decades ago. The show is executive produced by Seth McFarlane.

"You will learn our place in space and in time. Once we zoom away from earth and we drop you in the multi-verse (multiple countless other universes) we look at the connectivity to the rest of what we have out there," said Dr. Tyson, who hosts the series.

The universe which is 13.8 billion years old is presented in an easy to understand -albeit mindlowing- form:

“We put the time line of the universe on a year-in-a- glance calendar. That calendar is the size of a football field. Our galaxy formed March 15; our solar system formed August 31; writing began 14 seconds to Midnight on December 31; dinosaurs went extinct on December 30.  We are newcomers on the calendar. This kind of perspective is not only humbling, but it lifts you up. Maybe I’m empowered to be a better shepherd, that’s what distinguishes it from other documentaries," said deGrasse Tyson.

See for yourself Sunday, March 9 at 9 p.m. on FOX 5.
