Opening Theme to Cosmos

“The Cosmos is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be… 

"The Cosmos is full beyond measure, of elegant truths, of exquisite interrelationships, of the awesome machinery of nature… 

"Some part of our being knows, this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the Cosmos is also within us. We are made of star stuff. We are a way for the Cosmos to know itself.”  -Carl Sagan

One of my favorites aspects of the original Cosmos on PBS was the beautiful opening theme music by Vangelis, titled “Heaven and Hell,” paired with some gorgeous animated paintings of distant stars and galaxies.

The music and Sagan's monologue still gives me tingles down my spine.
