Click "Show more" to watch the original interview with the link provided below. Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson was asked by a reader of TIME magazine...
I have heard lots of it before, but the way Dr. Tyson says it is always captivating.
This is incredible. Brought tears to my eyes.
Dr Tyson is just such an engaging and charismatic speaker. He is this generation's Carl Sagan. And we need someone like him speaking now more than ever
NdT is my favorite astrophysicist of all time. I put him right there with Carl Sagan.
Oh, and I've seen him say this live - he said this exact thing when he spoke at a conference I speak at, Lotusphere. He has spoken there twice - the first time he talked about Pluto's demotion, the second was just the excitement about science, astrophysics, etc. - and he said this, and it was inspiring.
As an aside, did anyone else think that the moon that zoomed into view at about the 2:20 mark was the Death Star? I guess I'm too much of a Star Wars junkie.... ;)
I heard him on the radio today. He said he is working on hosting an up-to-date new series of Carl Sagan's Cosmos. 13th episodes by end 2014. a bit more here.
