A Conversation with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson (Part One)

My daughter and I with Dr. Tyson

Everyone has one of those lists. You know, a list of the three or four people you would most like to sit down and have a conversation with.

Today, I had the opportunity to talk to one of the people on my list.

It was none other than the Director of New York’s Hayden Planetarium, famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Dr. Tyson is was in Huntsville Friday to speak at the commencement at U.A. Huntsville, and was kind enough to sit down with me for over half an hour.  The Carl Sagan of this generation, he is one of America’s best ambassadors of science.
