So, I just heard today that Neil Degrasse Tyson is coming to Cincinnati! I can’t believe it! I’d love to go see him speak. If you’re in the CIncinnati area and want to go see him too, click here to see about tickets.
The Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey series NDT has been helping to revive just completely blows my mind. Seriously. It is amazing. If you haven’t watched it yet, you really should. It’s a documentary series that talks about all sorts of things…science, biology, astrophysics, astronomy, knowledge in general and even history…and many many other things, too. It breaks what we know about the universe down into smaller parts and explains them in ways that normal people (people who aren’t rocket scientists) can understand. Also, the special effects for this series are seriously out of this world (pun intended)! I feel like all of these things combined are making it “cool” to like science and technology…and that is pretty damn cool, if you ask me.
Aside from Cosmos just being an all around kick-ass show, I feel like Neil Degrasse Tyson is just a super cool guy that oozes wisdom. Check out this short video titled The Most Astounding Fact and you’ll see what I mean. It’s pretty amazing and since it’s Monday, we could use all the inspiration we can get, right?
