If you want to know how the Universe works, watch this show
I just want to put in one more word urging you to watch Neil deGrasse Tyson's COSMOS, airing Sunday nights at 9PM on FOX (yes, that FOX. Apparently they're not all assholes).
The show literally provides an excellent basic education in science, the scientific method, the history of science and covers not only astronomy, but also astrophysics, geology, biology, quantum mechanics, paleontology, meteorology and just about any other science you can name. Plus, it does so in an easy to understand and wonderfully entertaining manner. I'm fairly science literate, pretty educated in how the universe works and how science reveals those scientific truths, and I'm learning a lot. It's a wonderful show. It should be required to be watched by every human being.
If you've missed any episodes, you can find full episodes on-line here. COSMOS.
Watch it. You'll learn many things and you won't regret it.
