Scientific Literacy by Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Posted by Dan Satterfield

A HUGE bow to Dr. Michael Tobis of Only In It For The Gold. He found this video and posted it.
I am posting it too and EVERY person who blogs about science should post it as well. (Maybe I can start something here!)

I have several heroes (Everyone should have heroes). Carl Sagan, Richard Feynman and Neil DeGrasse Tyson are all near the top. Sagan and Feynman are no longer with us, but Tyson is thank goodness. He has stepped into Sagan’s shoes as the nations scientist. He fills them well.

Very well.

In case you do not know who Tyson is (which means your scientific literacy is lacking but perhaps not horribly so) then go here.
