    I have a question for other Cosmos owners. Did you notice the incorrect spelling of episode 12? Shouldn't it be "Encyclopedia Galactica" instead of "EncyclopAedia Galactica" considering the source I can't believe they missed that. Maybe they saw it but didn't have the budget to go back and fix it? Did it air originally spelled like that? Does anybody know the story behind this?
    Thanks

    Don't quote me on this, but I believe either spelling is correct. Encyclopaedia is a little fancier; perhaps by using that spelling, they were noting the Greek origin of the word? Where's an etymologist when you need one? [​IMG]

    I believe that Encyclopaedia is the british spelling.
