Neil deGrasse Tyson is my Hero

Seriously. My hero of the modern world is Neil deGrasse Tyson. If you're not aware of his work, Neil is an astrophysicist at the Hayden Planetarium (in NYC), an advocate for the sciences and exploration, an educator and philosopher who teaches by example.

He's basically all around awesome.

I posted awhile ago when Zen Pencils made a comic using one of his quotes, but now that quote's been put to Neil's words and made into a video, and it's pretty freaking cool. Here ya go:

Oh I totally agree. I just love everything he does and admire him so much.

That is really awesome! The comic is totally fitting to that quote. I can see why you like him as well!

Absolutely fabulous. I am also a huge fan of Neil deGrasse Tyson. He is awesome. And Zen Pencils is rapidly becoming one of my very favorite websites.

My boyfriend is a huge Neil fan and showed me the original speech a couple days ago. Love it! :-)
