Making science seem accessible is quite a trick. But astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is good at it.
Dr. Tyson is with us this week. He'll explain his passion for space and what the exploration of the cosmos is telling us about the very nature of life.
Thank you so very much for featuring Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson on your program. It is absolutely wonderful to know that his infectious enthusiasm for the scientific outlook and scientific literacy will not simply pass over our little state...at least not for lack of exposure. Dr. Tyson is a very influential member of the scientific community, and having heard many interviews with him by other organizations it was truly great to witness his positive message getting a local voice. I unfortunately only caught the last 5 minutes of the interview, but I was delighted to see his face on Utah public television and I will certainly be watching the full video directly after I post this thank you.

Wow, I think that Dr. deGrasse Tyson has made a powerful argument for the advancement of science education in this country...
And we should all be so diligent as to add a little bit more scientific thought into each of our daily lives.
Well done, Dr. deGrasse Tyson. Well done.
