We owe the remarkable diversity of life on earth and we presume the universe, to the cosmic abundance of carbon and the countless simple and complex molecules that contain it.
– Neil deGrasse Tyson–
Neil deGrasse Tyson is loved throughout the world for explaining the concepts of astrophysics so all can understand and appreciate the spectacular universe we inhabit.
As the director of the world renowned Hayden Planetarium he has spread the glory of the cosmos and now, with his book Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, that glory is right at your fingertips.
It’s a small book but is so packed with information I’m doing two episodes with Dr. Tyson. In our first conversation, airing this week on most of our PBS stations, we’ll explore the universe from the big bang up to Isaac Newtown. (Click here for times and channels in your area)
I know you will enjoy this remarkable man and wide range of universal concepts we cover.
Have a Happy and Healthy Fourth of July and when you look up at all the fireworks don’t forget to see all the splendor of the heavens above.
