Mark your cosmic calendars! Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey with host Neil deGrasse Tyson airs next Sunday, March 9 at 9/8c on FOX. Like Carl Sagan’soriginal 1980 television series, Cosmos: a Personal Voyage, the new follow-up series promises to take viewers on an exciting exploration of time, space, and our place within them. With modern special effects, the new Cosmos has potential to make as big of a bang as the original.
We love science as much as we love events, so we’ve been daydreaming about hosting a Cosmos premiere party. These are some of our favorite ideas, but there are billions and billions of other possibilities for a space-themed event.
Describe the Vibe:
Small, intimate, appetizers, and (lots of) pie. A stylish, stellar space theme that isn’t too kitschy or quirky. A galactic gathering that’s out-of-this-world, but not over-the-top.
Set the table with this DIY constellation table runner.
And set the mood with a starry indoor night light.
We love this giant star chart hanging behind a simple dessert table.

Carl Sagan also liked pie. Or at least he liked to talk about it: ““If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.”
This party needs a cocktail!
In addition to the obvious (eating, drinking, and watching Cosmos), rent a telescope for your stargazing guests.
Lucky for you, galaxy print clothes and accessories are everywhere.
Pretty sure I don’t need to explain why you need this astronomically awesome t-shirt.
Some Sagan (solar) flare.
What about you? Do you plan on watching Cosmos on Sunday? Will you be alone in the universe, or hosting a big bang of a bash with some of your friends? Whether or not you invite Pluto is entirely up to you (but know that Neil would say no).

Oh, and one last thing . . .
