Neil deGrasse Tyson | The Long Center for the Performing Arts

Comets & Asteroids & Space Junk, Oh My! Neil deGrasse Tyson Returns to the Long Center, January 16

It’s true—award-winning astrophysicist, author and host of FOX’s Cosmos who needs no introduction—even though we can’t help ourselves and just gave him one anyway—returns to the Long Center January 16th to blind us with science once more. Tickets are already on sale for this event but be vigilant—they fly fast!

Join us for an evening of engaging conversation with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson as he shares his ruminations on science, exploration and the world as we know it—or don’t know it, as the case may be. For his Austin engagement Dr. Tyson will deliver his lecture ‘Cosmic Collisions,’ focusing on all things that go bump in the night (and in the day). Yes, the universe wants to kill you: On occasion these collisions—asteroid and comet impacts on Earth—can render life extinct. Together, we’ll learn why and how this happens and what we are doing about it.

You know Dr. Tyson from PBS’s NOVA ScienceNOW, from his numerous professional publications, and from his television appearances, but come see this out-of-this world personality and NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal recipient for yourself January 16th. You won’t regret it.

Here he is shooting the breeze with James Cordon & Andy Samberg. Spoiler: Maybe alien life has already decided we’re not intelligent enough for them? Hope this tides you over!

Neil deGrasse Tyson lands in Austin this January—will you join him for some comic (and cosmic) relief?
