More than three decades after the debut of Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, Carl Sagan’s stunning and iconic exploration of the universe, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey sets off this spring on a new voyage for the stars. Hosted by renowned astrophysicist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson, the series will explore how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. In this special event, hosted by National Geographic’s executive science editor Jamie Shreeve, fans in Grosvenor Auditorium and in other cities around the country will have the exclusive opportunity to see the highly anticipated premiere, originating from the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. Following the screening, Tyson, writer/executive producer Ann Druyan, executive producer Seth MacFarlane, executive producer/director Brannon Braga and executive producer Mitchell Cannold will participate in a live and interactive Q & A.
