The beautiful intro to the Cosmos television series. Carl Sagan talks about the universe and our place within it.

The intro music is an excerpt from "Heaven & Hell Part I" by Vangelis.

*NOTE 2: It appears Koch Entertainment (now "E1 Distribution") doesn´t wish to pull the video after all. I just got a private message basically saying they used the content search feature to place ads on the videos. Sounds like a sound approach, so yeah, hope you DON´T go bankrupt in the recession I guess :) And sorry about my ill-informed comments.

*NOTE 1 (The following does NOT apply any more, please see note 2 for clarification): "Koch Entertainment" has just filed a copyright-claim against this clip, so I don´t know for how much longer it stays up. I´d like to thank you all for your ratings and wonderful comments. Finally, I´d like to say FUCK YOU KOCH ENTERTAINMENT, for trying to remove something that has probably made 100+ people go out and buy the series on DVD. I hope you go bankrupt in the recession. Cheers.*
