  • Neil DeGrasse Tyson Is A Conduit To Knowledge

    Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is available now on Netflix. This article from Brandon Fibbs, the show’s research coordinator, is about what it was like to work with Neil deGrasse Tyson. Excerpt: ‘The thing about Neil is, when you spend any amount of time with him, he makes you think you can do astrophysics. You can’t, of course. It is profoundly difficult stuff. But his explanations are so lucid and so clear that he reduces the most complex ideas to something shockingly intuitive. He does this not by dumbing the material down, but by elevating your aptitude; by transforming your perspective and the vantage point by which you come to the information. He transforms the profound into the practical and then back again.’
