About 5 years ago I watched my first interview of Neil deGrasse Tyson on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. I was immediately a fan of this man of science. He’s so incredibly passionate about science and treating knowledge with respect and creating a scientifically literate world. It’s nice to find someone of such intelligence who is also so outgoing, well-spoken, and socially unawkward (inawkward?) (not socially awkward?).
I just watched the following interview and remembered again why I like him so much. I watched all 90 minutes of it and it was totally worth it. I recommend giving yourself some time to sit and watch it even if you think the subject matter is miles above your head. It’s moving and exciting and funny.
I hope you enjoy. This man gets me excited about science and learning.
