The universe is full of unbelievable strange elements, but the sixth episode of COSMOS A SPACE TIME ODYSSEY airing Sunday, April 20 on FOX and Monday April 21 on Nat Geo helps viewers watch things they’d likely never see without a microscope or top-of-the-line telescope. The show is hosted by renowned astrophysicist and author Neil de Grasse Tyson (“Death by Black Hole,” ” Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate frontier”).
In this week’s “Deeper, Deeper, Deeper Still,” episode, Neil de Grasse Tyson takes us on a journey into the basic details of our existence, exploring the atomic and sub-atomic structure of the Universe. The series will reveal never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and take viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale.
