The Long Center presents An Evening with Neil deGrasse Tyson, January 18 in Dell Hall.
Your favorite astrophysicist is back—and if you joined us last time, get ready because this is an ALL NEW SHOW of galactic proportions.
Join Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, award-winning astrophysicist, author, and host of FOX’s Cosmos for an evening of engaging conversation on science, exploration and the world as we know it. Dr. Tyson’s lecture title is “The Cosmic Perspective.” There is no view of the world as emotionally potent as the one granted by a cosmic perspective. It’s one that sees Earth as a planet in a vast empty universe. It profoundly influences what we think and feel about science, culture, politics, and life itself.
In addition to dozens of professional publications, Dr. Tyson has written, and continues to write for the public. For five seasons, beginning in the fall of 2006, Tyson appeared as the on-camera host of PBS-NOVA’s spinoff program NOVA ScienceNOW, which is an accessible look at the frontier of all the science that shapes the understanding of our place in the universe. Tyson is the recipient of eighteen honorary doctorates and the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, the highest award given by NASA to a non-government citizen.
- Pictures from the Meet & Greet with Dr. Tyson will be emailed to attendants by Wednesday, January 25.
