"The final thirty seconds of the zoom replicates the original photograph taken by Voyager 1 in 1990, albeit upside-down."

Say what? It's space. Jeez.

So the tree in episode 2 of both the original and reboot Cosmos (around half an hour into the first one), the one that Neil uses to demonstrate the branches of evolution, are they the same tree? They really look like the same tree, but I'd like a second opinion before adding it to the trope page.

There are some things in the reboot which are a definite Take That! to creationism/Young Earth/intelligent design, but not all of these examples are—if it's prefaced with "could be", "perhaps", "casual statement" etc it's essentially "Arguably" which means it doesn't count.

Creationists/Young Earthers/intelligent designers basically think that the whole entire show is a Take That! towards their views, but there's a distinction between "Tyson specifically devotes time to debunking a claim of theirs" and "Tyson happens to talk about things they hate in the context of some other thing", like the Pleiades myths and the repetition of the Deluge myths. I'm sure he knew that they'd get all pissed off about the latter two instances, but he didn't do it specifically to point out their wrongness the way he did with eye evolution.

In the second episode there is an image of the cavemen IN the fire Tyson is tending. I'm wondering if this is a trope - I checked for vision in flames and similar, but no dice.

I don't think we have such a trope. Might want to propose it in YKTTW.

Should there be separate "Cosmos 1980" and "Cosmos 2014" articles?

Try using separate sections on the page first, like is done on The Hobbit (for movie sequels) and The Phantom Of The Opera (for adaptations).

How well does it match the trope?
