I’ll be speaking with Astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson tomorrow (Sunday) morning on Atheist Talk Radio. Details here. We’ll be talking about The Universe, clouds of dust, space travel, science literacy and education, and whatever else we get to. We have a long list of topics and a short hour with some commercial breaks, so I doubt we’ll solve all of the mysteries of the universe.
Neil deGrasse Tyson is the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History. He is the author of countless essays and several books, including Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries; Origins: Fourteen Billion Years of Cosmic Evolution, which accompanies a PBS documentary of the same name; a rather riveting memoir called The Sky Is Not the Limit: Adventures of an Urban Astrophysicist; and of course, The Pluto Files: The Rise and Fall of America’s Favorite Planet. Yes, yes, he is the guy who killed Pluto. Or, as Julia recently quipped when I told her it wasn’t really his fault: “Right. He was the head of the committee that killed Pluto! Same thing!”
I hope you’ll join us.
