Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey premieres Sunday night, and President Obama will be giving a super special introduction to the first episode. We don't think it's a coincidence that the show is hosted by astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson. 

Tyson and Obama met at the White House last week during the Student Film Festival. Boring, right? Until fellow attendee Bill Nye the Science Guy tweeted a selfie of the three. The first episode of Cosmos was actually screened at the film festival,

Obama will apparently "invite a new generation to embrace the spirit of discovery and inspire viewers to explore new frontiers and imagine limitless possibilities for the future." Fun! The thirteen-episode series kicks off Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET on Fox, FX, FXX, FXM, National Geographic, Fox Sports 1 and 2, Nat Geo Wild and Nat Geo Mundo.
