Outer space seems really cool and all, just don't ask us to explain what the heck is going on out there. If you want a comprehensive yet also comprehensible tutorial on what exactly is going on in the universe, check out the visually stunning TV series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey ($32). Most importantly, the series is hosted by everyone's favorite astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson. Okay, we can't name another astrophysicist, so that's kind of a distinction by default, but we have trouble believing anyone could steal the crown from Tyson anyway.
