Neil deGrasse Tyson
On Tuesday, May 12th, Tyson will present “The Cosmic Perspective.” There is no view of the world as emotionally potent as the one granted by a cosmic perspective. It’s one that sees Earth as a planet in a vast empty universe. It profoundly influences what people think and feel about science, culture, politics, and life itself.
Tyson has managed to capture audiences with his sometimes humorous and always informative insights into modern physics. A regular guest on The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and host of his own enduring radio show StarTalk, Tyson, continually inspires generations old and new to take an interest in the universe around them.
