The Known Universe

Just finished listening to Neil deGrasse Tyson of NOVA ScienceNOW fame, among other accomplishments. At this National Science Foundation conference on informal science learning he shared his experiences and perspectives on engaging the public with science for greater literacy.

I introduced myself afterward and he came down from the stage, sat next to me, and was intent on hearing how COSI was doing. Obviously our profile was greater than I might have thought!

Check out this YouTube phenomena that he helped create –The Known Universe (approaching 4 million hits in less than 4 months!).
