1 Sahil Badruddin = "Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson seems to me like he is 2/3 scientist and 1/3 comedian. He will make you laugh - but he will make you think as well. No one else will make you ponder and wonder at the beauty of the universe quite like he will. This is a collection of some of his best speeches and interviews on Life, The Universe and Everything.Neil deGrasse Tyson (born October 5, 1958) is an American astrophysicist, author, and science communicator. He is currently the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space and a research associate in the department of astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History. From 2006 to 2011, he hosted the educational science television show NOVA ScienceNow on PBS and has been a frequent guest on The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Real Time with Bill Maher. Since 2009, he has hosted the weekly radio show Star Talk. In 2014, Tyson hosted Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, an update to Carl Sagan's Cosmos: A Personal Voyage (1980) television series.In an interview with Roger Bingham on "The Science Network" he said:"[A] most important feature is theanalysis of the information thatcomes your way. And that's what Idon't see enough of in this world.There's a level of gullibility thatleaves people susceptible to beingtaken advantage of. I see scienceliteracy as kind of a vaccine againstcharlatans who would try to exploityour ignorance.""
