President Barack Obama gave the introduction to the premiere episode of the television miniseries "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" that debuted Sunday night on Fox and the National Geographic Channel.

"America has always been a nation of fearless explorers who dream bigger and reach farther than others imagine," Obama said. "That's the spirit of discovery that Carl Sagan captured in the original 'Cosmos.'

"Today we're doing everything we can to bring that same sense of possibility to a new generation because there are new frontiers to explore, and we need Americans eager to explore them," the president added.

The White House held a screening of the first episode of the series as part of the first White House Film Festival on Feb. 28, Deadline reported.

Cosmos is a remake of the classic series that was launched by the late scientist Carl Sagan in 1980 and was watched by more than 750 million viewers around the world, making it the most successful television series in history.
