Inquisitive minds of all ages won’t want to miss this rare chance to hear world-renowned astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, author of 10 bestselling books, host of FOX’s hit docuseries “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” and consummate expert on the cosmos.
Tyson will give a riveting, multi-media presentation for the whole family that brings the expanses of modern science direct to audience members.
Tyson will even engage audiences in a lively Q&A that will rival the presentation itself. Often taking questions from children to foster their interest in science, he is happy to answer questions about everything from television appearances and space elevators to parenting advice.
Also director of the Hayden Planetarium, Tyson previously hosted PBS-NOVA series “NOVA ScienceNOW” for five seasons, which provided an accessible look at the scientific frontier that shapes our understanding of the universe.
He has also given interviews with myriad national television shows, including “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “The Today Show” and “The Daily Show,” and has even guest starred on hit CBS show “The Big Bang Theory.”
The recipient of 18 honorary doctorates and the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, Tyson was appointed by NASA to serve on its prestigious Advisory Council to help guide the agency’s ongoing ambitious vision. He has also been appointed to federal commissions to study the U.S. aerospace industry and the implementation of new U.S. space exploration policy.
