кякка!
Досмотрела Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey. Нил Деграсс "I Want It Big" Тайсон сделал кое-что замечательно отличное от оригинала по духу. Хочется думать, что это разница не только между двумя учёными и популяризаторами науки, но и между веяниями времени, в которое снимались сериалы.
Тайсон намного оптимистичней. Где Саган сомневался и задавал грустные вопросы, там Тайсон уверенно говорит: мы сможем. И улыбается с подъёбом)))

Финал отдельно положу, он прекрасен.
Only a few centuries ago, a mere second of cosmic time, we knew nothing of where or when we were. Oblivious to the rest of the cosmos, we inhabited a kind of prison-- a tiny universe bounded by a nutshell. How did we escape from the prison? It was the work of generations of searchers who took five simple rules to heart.
Question authority. No idea is true just because someone says so, including me.
Think for yourself. Question yourself. Don't believe anything just because you want to. Believing something doesn't make it so.
Test ideas by the evidence gained from observation and experiment. If a favorite idea fails a well-designed test, it's wrong! Get over it.
Follow the evidence, wherever it leads. If you have no evidence, reserve judgment.
And perhaps the most important rule of all... Remember, you could be wrong. Even the best scientists have been wrong about some things. Newton, Einstein, and every other great scientist in history, they all made mistakes. Of course they did-- they were human. Science is a way to keep from fooling ourselves... and each other.
Have scientists known sin? Of course. We have misused science, just as we have every other tool at our disposal, and that's why we can't afford to leave it in the hands of a powerful few. The more science belongs to all of us, the less likely it is to be misused. These values undermine the appeals of fanaticism and ignorance and, after all, the universe is mostly dark, dotted by islands of light.
