* Prince Maximilian of Bavaria's stewardship over Joseph Fraunhofer, starting with the image of him carrying the boy from the wreckage of his master's home, then offering him a position as royal glass maker, all leading to his becoming the premier maker of scientific glass and prisms of his time. All because of a noble's act of kindness toward a peasant in need.

* The new series just started and already it had a heartwarming moment of epic proportions: NeilDeGrasseTyson recounts his first meeting with Creator/CarlSagan, and says that before meeting Sagan, he already knew he wanted to be a scientist, but after meeting Carl, he knew what type of '''''person''''' he wanted to be. ManlyTears were shed.

* Sagan's sympathetic portrayal and defense of Johannes Kepler, a devoutly religious mathematician and astrologer who struggled to find a harmony to the universe.

* In "The Electric Boy", the SadistTeacher orders Robert Faraday to buy a cane so that she can hit his little brother Michael with it. Instead, Robert fetches his mum and gives the teacher a DeathGlare as Mrs. Faraday takes both her children out of that place.

Added DiffLines:

* Although it ended in humiliation and brutal execution for him, the depiction of Giordano Bruno's fateful dream is quite awe-inspiring. The look on his face as he leaves the confining bowl and soars into the infinite cosmos is one of adoration and awe, and he describes the experience as akin to falling in love.

** Here's what happened: Tyson shows the audience Carl Sagan's personal calendar from 1975, showing the date when he met with Tyson. Sagan personally picked up Tyson from the bus station in Ithaca and showed him around Cornell University, even giving him an autographed copy of ''The Cosmic Connection.'' After the day was done, Sagan took him back to the bus station. Concerned that the snow was falling harder, Sagan gave Tyson his home phone number and told him to call if the bus couldn't make it, offering Tyson to spend the night with his family. The idea that the world's most famous scientist at the time would devote that much attention to "just a seventeen-year-old kid from The Bronx" shows what type of person Carl Sagan was, and why Neil deGrasse Tyson wants to pay it forward by making science popular again.

* Episode 3 of the reboot portrays the friendship between Isaac Newton and Edmund Halley, without whom Newton's ''Principia'' would never have been published. This event is then linked directly to the exploration of space in the 20th century, which was made possible by Newton's ideas. Tyson then notes that Halley has been in his friend's shadow ever since despite his own considerable scientific work, clearly hoping that he's doing his part to restore the reputation of this forgotten giant.
