Neil DeGrasse Tyson Explains Why The Cosmos Shouldn’t Make You Feel Small
When it comes to “callings” we usually think of people who feel drawn to religious career paths. But if you ask Neil deGrasse Tyson how he became an astrophysicist he says: “I think the universe called me. I feel like I had no say in the matter.”
Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Natural History in New York, is a prolific writer and frequently cited authority on astronomy in the popular media. He’s hosted a four-part series on Nova and appeared everywhere from The Tonight Show to The Daily Show to Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!
This spring, Tyson hosts a new TV series called Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey. It’s an update of the influential 1980 PBS series Cosmos: A Personal Journey. (source)
Cosmos will be on TV tonight at 9pm EST, on FOX!
