"Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey," is a relaunch of Carl Sagan’s classic "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage." The show, hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, is designed to reach everyone with its broad, visually stunning approach to science.
Cosmos premieres Sunday (March 9) on FOX, and Monday (March 10) on the National Geographic Channel.
This incredibly awesome Octopus Chandelier is the work of Mason Parker of Mason’s Creations. The tentacular stained glass light fixture measures approximately four feet across, sports eight detachable tentacles, and can be illuminated in three different ways - using just the head, just the tentacles, or by placing real candles in the candleholders held by each curled tentacle.
Mason recently sold this particular octopoid light fixture, but don’t worry, he’s planning to make another one soon. Let’s all start saving our pennies. The finished piece sells for $18,000, so perhaps we can work out some sort of time-sharing scheme.
