For many, getting involved in the wide world of science, with its many layers and facets of study, can be an arduous task. When treading in waters that can be frightening and questionable, it is great to have a guide who makes you feel safe and comfortable. Neil deGrasse Tyson, I believe, is that voice, who can galvanize not only the science community, but the world at large.
Neil has been hard at work as an astrophysicist and communicator of science for a multitude of years now. His invigorating personality and love of science is the first thing you will notice about NDT when you first encounter him. I’m not going to lie and sit here and say I have been the foremost follower of the sciences all my life, the curiosity has always been there, but the actual research into everything hasn’t been present until running into the works of Neil deGrasse Tyson.
In his particular discipline, which stated above, is astrophysics, Neil deGrasse Tyson gives eloquent, fun and detailed examinations of the cosmos and what is out there in this galaxy. It is quite humbling once you look into these things to see how vast our galaxy is, and to realize as humans, we are just a small piece of the pie when it comes to the grand scheme of things. NDT is doing the world a service by providing a unique take on astrophysics and science, in general.
