He is the world’s most beloved scientist – an inspiration for all who seek understanding, meaning and truth in the vastness of the cosmos. Now Neil deGrasse Tyson joins the How To Academy Podcast to ask: what is our place in the universe?
Neil deGrasse Tyson has dedicated his life to exploring and explaining the mysteries of our universe. As Director of the Hayden Planetarium, the host of Cosmos and StarTalk, a New York Times bestselling author and owner of one of the 200 ‘most followed’ Twitter accounts on the entire planet, he might just be the most influential scientist alive today.
Every year, Professor Tyson receives thousands of letters – from students to prisoners, scientists to priests. Some seek advice, others yearn for inspiration; some are full of despair, others burst with wonder. His replies are by turns wise, funny, and mind-blowing. In this podcast, Neil shares his favourite ideas from decades of correspondence – exploring issues from atheism to aliens, racism in America to the cosmic perspective on human life.
