This 2.5-Year Old Girl’s Joy For COSMOS is Contagious

On March 9, Neil deGrasse Tyson premiered his new TV series, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. A modern iteration of Cosmos, the show originally hosted by Carl Sagan in the ’80s, Dr. Tyson’s version has met with rave reviews, and is already inspiring young, future scientists.

The show offers a great opportunity for parents to bond with their kids over some kick-ass science broadcasting. Many parents are allowing their little ones to stay up past their bedtimes to watch and learn.

Clad in her space pj’s, 2.5-year old Delilah is beyond a LITTLE bit excited by what she sees. As if she’s been given an ice-cream cone on a hot day, she screams “THE MOON!”

Delilah had so much fun watching episode 1, her folks let her stay up again for episode 2. Although she may be too young to fully understand some of the more complex concepts, she clearly knows her stuff.

This is one of the many reasons we need to continue to support space exploration. Watch out universe, here comes Delilah!

We just couldn’t get enough! Check out Delilah learning about evolution.

    Space is the original video game. What a wonderful idea to resurrect this series. I loved the Sagan iteration–he was so deadpan in his delivery, as I remember it, it seemed ominous–but I also like Tyson’s smooth enthusiasm (and the fact that his face is always smiling).
