We must travel our solar system, our galaxy and when possible, other galaxies looking for conditions that most closely resemble conditions on earth.

Cosmos the popular TV series is back with a new season, Cosmos: Possible Worlds.

This season the emphasis is on storytelling and exploration of possible worlds outside earth.

Humans throughout history have journeyed to environments that are more favorable to their survival and wellbeing with mixed results.

Cosmos possible worlds takes us on a journey that explores the challenges and historical paths taken and lessons learned in a multidisciplinary effort to educate and engage its audience.

Using the best visual effects capabilities and the narrative and scientific genius of Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, we are taken on a journey to explore what the future of humanity might look like.

In order to find possible habitable worlds outside of earth, be it on a moon or a planetary body we must understand a much as we can about factors affecting life as we've known it.

By exploring potentially habitable worlds or worlds with conditions that might promote or already host life, even if microbial, we learn more about ourselves, and the universe.

The habitability of a planet or a moon is temporary and finding new homes will be a constant effort of humanity, as has always been on our home planet for most of our history.

We must travel our solar system, our galaxy and when possible, other galaxies looking for conditions that most closely resemble conditions on earth.

We will need all of Astronomy and biology and all the sciences to pull off a feat as grand as a permanent colony in space.

Climate change, pandemics, asteroid impacts and nuclear conflict could bring about an end to humanity and as humanity ages on earth the likelihood of these events seem to greatly increase, it is imperative that we spread into the other worlds as a mechanism for survival.

In a bid to educate audiences of a wide range, from age to educational experience on such varied topics and communicate accurate science and not make it feel dumbed down or like a lecture or even a documentary a unique mix of visual effects, storytelling skills, narrative ability, and multi-disciplinary effort is needed.

Cosmos: Possible worlds taps into its rich history and heritage with Ann Druyan as Executive Producer, Writer and Director.

Mrs. Ann who is not a trained scientist but understands the science as well as anyone might, understands the challenges presented by targeting a diverse audience and put much effort into making this the perfect for a vast range of viewers.

+ Cosmos: Possible Worlds premiers on National Geographic on Monday 9 2020.

What if mysterious 'cotton candy' planets actually sport rings?
Pasadena CA (SPX) Mar 03, 2020
Some of the extremely low-density, "cotton candy like" exoplanets called super-puffs may actually have rings, according to new research published in The Astronomical Journal by Carnegie's Anthony Piro and Caltech's Shreyas Vissapragada Super-puffs are notable for having exceptionally large radii for their masses--which would give them seemingly incredibly low densities. The adorably named bodies have been confounding scientists since they were first discovered, because they are unlike any planets ... read more
