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.

We have writers who as their episodes are airing they're talking about what they were thinking about when they wrote and saying lovely things."

    School is back in session for some and will be for most students and staff starting next week.  Good Day New York wanted to salute teachers from across the Tristate as they head back to the classroom. On Thursday, a live studio audience of teachers were part of the Back To School Special: Good Day New York Sorry Summer is Over But We Praise and Honor Teachers (but no math; we like math teachers, though.)

    The U.S. Open is underway in Queens and there's no denying that many of the players, both men and women, are in great physical shape and know how to play that up. Women are particularly promoted in the industry as attractive, fashionable and fiercely competitive. Does that help the game and draw more people in?
