    Kara’s answers to the last couple of questions in particular were fascinating, if a little depressing. It makes you think hard about what we need to do in order to put things back on course.

    I adore the current Neil deGrasse Tyson hosted COSMOS: A Spacetime Odessey! It's phenomenal and a worthy successor to the revolutionary Carl Sagan hosted COSMOS: A Personal Journey series that first premièred on PBS 34 years ago! I share Dr. Lawrence M. Krauss' hope that this second COSMOS series is as successful and influential as the first was a generation ago! That it proves that there's a place for science non-fiction edutainment on prime-time, and is followed by other such programs more regularly than every 34 years! And most importantly of all, that it increases scientific literacy among the general populace and moreover inspires a new generation to embrace scientific pursuits! We need this is if we are to properly tackle the complex, more technological problems that we now-and-will face and moreover continue the past 400 years of truly impressive progress we have made as species, currently confined to that spaceship called Earth and looking outwards (and inwards as well) in wonder!
