President Obama Introduces COSMOS Premiere

It’s the continuation of the beloved television classic and its premiere is being carried by 10 television networks – a befittingly massive rollout for a show whose progenitor made popular the phrase “billions and billions.” And now, if there was any doubt as to just how epic the premiere of COSMOS has been, it has received a presidential kickoff.

Minutes ago, President Barack Obama gave an inspiring introduction to the premiere of the first episode. The President touched on the legacy of Carl Sagan and the original COSMOS, inviting a new generation of explorers to make the next great discovery.

You can watch his full introduction to the show below.

    Truly great to see a great series remade for a new generation. This is one of the few programs that provides to a wide audience an illumination of our place in space and a greater understanding of humanity’s origins.

    I just finished watching the first new COSMOS and can’t believe National geographic would sink so low as to inject politics into science and you should be ashamed of your selves. DR. Carol Sagan world never have done what you have done. I quote the host “these Giant redwoods became coal which we are burning for energy and imperiling the planet.” Everyone knows this administration has a war on coal and for you to insult the quality of DR. Sagan’s work and his memory is truly disgusting and laves me no choice to cancel my subscription and to NEVER watch your political BS AGAIN!

    How can one trust a show when it starts out with the biggest lair in political history. The endorsement left a bad taste in my mouth. I still gave the show a chance and decided it is far from NG quality. It really ruins the integrity NG built up to this point. Now I am questions NG facts.

    Dennis,

    Could you please provide evidence that Obama is the “biggest liar in political history”? “Now I am questions” your facts.
