Hello  {!firstname},

                             That's right. Neil deGrasse Tyson is no Carl Sagan, and that's because he ain't pretending to be.

Tyson is exceptionally good at being himself, which is why I believe he will do a splendid job of  heralding in the new
COSMOS when it finally airs  on March 9th.

      It was thanks to the late, great Johnny Carson of late night tv, who really gave a boost to Carl Sagan. 
He invited him onto the "Tonight Show" many times.
In fact, Johnny Carson was also an amateur astronomer and used a Celestron 14" telescope in an observatory in his back yard.    

      Tyson, who is an Astrophysicist, and the director of New York City, Hayden Planetarium is quite a dapper guy,
with a cool sense of humour.   

        It's going to very interesting to watch this series, and you won't want to miss it.

Be sure to tune in, starting March 9th, on the Fox television newswork.  (Not PBS as was the originally series).

Clear Skies,

Ray "Billions & billions" Khan

PPS And a quote from Johnny: "I know a man who gave up drinking, smoking, sex and was healthy right up
to the day he killed himself!".
