Expand your universe
As a highly popular and influential science advocate, Neil DeGrasse Tyson manages to capture audiences with his sometimes humorous and always informative insights into modern physics. A regular guest on The Daily Show, The Colbert Report and host of his own enduring radio show StarTalk, there is something of the entertainer about Tyson, continually inspiring generations old and new to take an interest in the universe around them.
Most recently, he has taken on the challenge of updating Carl Sagan's definitive 1980 television series 'Cosmos: A Personal Voyage' with 'Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,' asking questions about the abyss of space. At each venue, Tyson will be discussing different topics:
Von Braun Center Mark C. Smith Concert Hall - The Search for Life in the Universe
Long Centre and Tobin Centre - Cosmic Collisions
Orpheum Theatre Memphis - Ten Things You Should Know about the Universe
