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.
