Welcome to A Galaxy Called Dallas!

For 10 years A Galaxy Called Dallas has had a presence in the DFW area and specifically in the Garland area these last four years.

Begun in 2009 as a hobby blog, it eventually morphed into A Galaxy Called Dallas Comics located north of Downtown Garland, but has now closed.

We now return to our roots as a blog about the Geek Community in DFW but especially in the areas around Garland.

Official Trailer from Comic Con | COSMOS | FOX BROADCASTING

So, I was a little skeptical when I saw this airing on FOX. All I could think was Carl Sagan rolling over in his grave as they introduce the different teams of aliens that had to compete in this new "reality" show. But, I'm kind of glad to see this video. First, I am a big fan of the original. I never got tired of hearing, "billions and billions" and even now, I'll catch an episode on Netflix. I'm also a fan of Neil DeGrasse Tyson. It took me awhile, especially after that whole "Pluto's not a planet", but he makes learning fun. I think a great runner-up to host the show would have been Brian Cox from the Science Channel's "Wonders of Life." He just has that nice calming voice that makes you comfortable as you race across the universe.

Let a new era begin! Neil DeGrasse Tyson IS the Cosmos!

Did you or do you watch Cosmos? Are you interested in the new version and are you happy with who they chose to host it?

By the way, what was that "monolith"-looking thing just inside Saturn's rings about :30 seconds in?
