America’s favorite astrophysicist is a black man – Neil deGrasse Tyson. And he believes “the universe is under no obligation to make sense to you.” Tyson heads the Hayden Planetarium, which is a part of the American Museum of Science and Natural History, in New York City.



“People who believe they are ignorant of nothing have neither looked for, nor stumbled upon, the boundary between what is known and unknown in the universe.” -Neil deGrasse Tyson

If you’re a nerd, you might recognize him from “Nova Science Now” on PBS or from “StarTalk,” Tyson’s weekly Sunday show on the National Geographic Channel.



Tyson will sit down with Carson Daly as a guest on his show “Last Call with Carson Daly” this Monday to talk about stardust, the universe and his new book, “Astrophysics for People in a Hurry.” (“Last Call with Carson Daly,” Monday late night, October 23rd, 1:35 /12:35c on NBC.)
