This inspiring installment of the Cosmos franchise offers a mesmerizing viewing experience as it reveals what current scientific exploration is telling us about the potential wonders our future may hold. It contextualizes these conversations by offering some interesting history behind what is happening in the universe, and it identifies scientists who studied phenomena in hopes of helping humanity propel itself forward. The role of technology is also highlighted. Cosmos: Possible Worlds is as beautiful as it is interesting and is an important testament to the power of imagination and scientific exploration to keep humanity moving forward.
