That it proves that there's a place for science non-fiction edutainment on prime-time, and is followed by other such programs more regularly than every 34 years! And most importantly of all, that it increases scientific literacy among the general populace and moreover inspires a new generation to embrace scientific pursuits! We need this is if we are to properly tackle the complex, more technological problems that we now-and-will face and moreover continue the past 400 years of truly impressive progress we have made as species, currently confined to that spaceship called Earth and looking outwards (and inwards as well) in wonder!
