Sunday night's Cosmos premier ended with a touching personal story from Neil deGrasse Tyson on how he first met astrophysicist and science communicator Carl Sagan. Sagan, who died in 1996, was an astronomer, astrophysicist and an avid and skilled science communicator. He hosted the original PBS series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.
