Neal deGrasse Tyson is the most popular astrophysicists of today.   He has taken the mantle once held by Carl Sagan.   His ability to simplify and explain our relationship with science and the cosmos has made him a popular guest on many TV network shows. 

Dr Tyson will soon be hosting a new sixteen part science documentary beginning in late March or early April on Fox and the History Channel.  

Dr Tyson has given a number of interesting lectures ranging from black holes to UFOs to religion verses science.   Many of these are available on YOUTUBE and worth the time viewing.

  1. Seriously? Fox is hosting a science program ?? What's next ? lol hey--popped over from Mojave Rat's blog, cause he thinks you're the cats pajamas. I had to come see for myself, as I love both cats and pajamas. AND the Holey Pokey. *grin

  2. This is the guy who used to come on TV at dark thirty in the morning and let me know where and when Venus was going to rise.

  3. Haven't heard of him, will check him out, if I get time.

  4. Jack Horkheimer did the Stargazer on PBS for years, he died a few years ago and I think someone else took over doing a short bit on the stars and planets visible by the naked eye.

    I like the bit about how science is true whether you believe it or not!!


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
