Check out the introduction U.S. president Barack Obama recorded for the premiere of Fox’s science series reboot Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which premiered in the U.S. yesterday (March 9).

As previously reported, securing an intro from the U.S. leader marked a notable coup for the much-buzzed series. The last time the commander-in-chief introduced a major non-fiction series was in 2010, when he recorded an introduction for History’s 12-part factual series America: The Story of Us.

Watch the U.S. leader’s intro below, which aired ahead of the series’ first episode:
