    I'm not finding it in the upcoming schedule for the Science Channel. I see it earlier today, but not tomorrow, Friday, Saturday, etc. etc.

    According to their website, there were 13 episodes. And the airing began Sept. 27th, and seem to have ended. :( I missed it.

    It was the updated version. There was footage from the Voyager missions and computer technology etc that did not exist in 1980.

    I don't get that channel either, but I understand it's an updated updated version. They've redone the special effects and animation for the new run.

    I watched all 13 episodes. Even after all these years and all the things we've learned since I found it fascinating and thought provoking.

    Doh! I was scrolling through the thread hoping no one had made the joke yet.

    I see I am too late. ;)

    (I would have actually said "Billions and Billions..." though. ;) )
