The cosmos is pretty freaking awesome. And so is Neil deGrasse Tyson.
I am biased, because I really have a crush on both of them… and because I have this utter fondness in my heart for intellectual discovery. And because if you can make any bit of dull and complex material (such as the background of astro-physics) into a funny and compelling show- you have the stuff to change the world.
Science is important. There are few
crazy evengelicals who will argue this. Science is why we are where we are and how we are and what in we are in so many ways.
Neil DeGrasse Tyson is everything I want the sons I don’t have to be. He’s handsome, funny, engaging, worldly, and freaking smart. But he’s more than than. deGrasse Tyson is a kind, compassionate collaborative scientist who just wants to make the world better.
And did I say he’s funny?
We see a lot of him, because he is the current rock-star of science (who needs Bill Nye when you’ve got a real scientist???). But Parade did a good write up on him (and the new show he’s hosting).
And I’m totally crushing…
