Neil DeGrasse Tyson Gives Us What We Really Want: Real Science

In the first two episodes of the reboot of Cosmos Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson has done an excellent job laying down the basics of time, space, and how life developed on Earth. Because Cosmos is a show about science, Tyson clearly explains in the same engaging way Carl Sagan did almost thirty years ago that all of the theories scientists accept as truth go through a process of hypothesis, testing and verifying results. Certainly an hour-long science program produced for mass consumption couldn’t be controversial. After all, who would object to people learning something about the universe we live in?
