It was not only informative, well laid out, easily comprehensible, but also very enjoyable. I absolutely loved it. When you completely forget yourself watching it and don't notice the passing of time, then you are really enjoying the subject and that's because this is a masterpiece. Thanks so much Dr. Tyson.

With style and flair, Dr. Tyson presents some fascinating mysteries of the universe much like his childhood idol, the late great Dr. Carl Sagan. As has become his trademark, Dr. Tyson makes liberal use of high-tech imagery and special effects. His goal is to bring the wonders of the cosmos to the lay audience, which he succeeds in doing.

This is not a comprehensive course on cosmology, astronomy or physics. The course simply highlights some unexplained (or mysterious but explained) phenomena of the universe. The non-scientist will find these fascinating. The scientist who may already be familiar with the concepts will still enjoy the vivid images and computer simulations and may still learn a few new things. I have a Ph.D. in physics, yet the "Pioneer (spacecraft) problem" was new to me.

I watched this course yesterday and watched the lectures straight through. It was a very compelling experience. It has been a long time since I studied physics and other sciences in high school. My scholarly pursuits took a different direction, so this was a dynamic, eye opening experience for me.

I really enjoyed The Great Courses presentation and Dr. Tyson's measured cadence as he deliberated upon the science as we know it and, more important, how much more there is yet to discover. Now he will have me lying awake at night pondering these questions.
