isn't he dreamy?

On Sunday on C-SPAN Book TV, I caught the very end of the Q&A of a lecture given by Neil deGrasse Tyson, a well-known astrophysicist and host of NOVA, about one week ago at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC. His latest book, Death by Black Holes: And Other Cosmic Quandaries, was the title of his lecture. I was completely bummed that I missed his presentation, because when Dr. deGrasse Tyson speaks you can bet it is going to be entertaining and very informative. I love listening to him talk. I think he's awesome. I don't know if C-SPAN will air that lecture again soon, but the part of the Q&A that I was fortunate to catch reminded me very much of the end of his presentation (about which I made a post in the past) given at Beyond Belief 2006. I searched YouTube and found a clip of the conclusion to that lecture.

Duane,

This was sooo interesting. Is there anywhere I can see the rest of his lecture?

Just...wow. A lot of interesting things to think about.

Hey Sarah,

Isn't he dreamy? ;)

You can watch his entire lecture at:

The video is under Section 2 - Neil deGrasse Tyson.

You can view the lectures of other prominent intellectuals, such as Richard Dawkins and Paul Davies at this site too.
