A trailer for astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey just aired at Comic-Con 2013, and it's a dazzling display of what's to come next year. Based on Carl Sagan's pioneering series, Cosmos: A Personal Journey, the new Cosmos is set for a 13-episode reboot in Spring, 2014, courtesy of the FOX network. The new trailer for the series features deGrasse Tyson in Sagan's classic spacecraft, but with fancy new graphics; the first glimpse spans the orchestra of microscopic life to the vast expanses of the universe, with a combination of breathtaking footage, solid CGI, and traditional animation. Watch the full trailer below — it's worth every second.

Update: It looks like the trailer was taken down and replaced by a spot for another FOX property, American Dad. We've embedded another version of the video; hopefully this won't morph into a Glee trailer anytime soon.
