I have become a bigger and bigger fan of Neil deGrasse Tyson over the years. As I have watched and read more about him, I have come to admire his passion for science, way of thinking, and his ability to communicate and debate. He is a voice in the scientific community that is truly inspiring. In fact, after watching videos of him speak and get excited about science, it makes me want to grab my math textbooks and brush off the dust on my mathematical background. He inspires me to want to learn and discover more about what is true of reality.
For the last couple of weeks, I have been watching YouTube videos of him and I thought I would share a couple that I have enjoyed, here. So please, take the time to sit back and enjoy some good arguments, comebacks, and inspiring thoughts of Neil deGrasse Tyson.
“Can a man still be brave if he’s afraid?”
“That is the only time a man can be brave,” his father told him.
– George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
“Vulnerability comes in pretending to be someone you are not.”
– Sam Harris, Lying
In case you thought I quit writing on this blog, you are wrong. I have merely let my creative juices rebuild as I look over topics I have thought about in the past while considering some new. I hope to have a post up in a couple of days and we will see if things ramp back up here soon. Not sure though, I’m a busy person outside of this blog. To bring myself back into the fold, here’s a video I really enjoy. Talk to you soon.
I saw this entertaining video here and thought that it was worth sharing. Tyson will be the host of the remake of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos and I cannot wait to watch it. But for now, let us answer the question; what will happen if you are too close to a black hole?
I have not yet read any of A.C. Grayling’s books, but I hope to soon. In this video, he puts the time we have here in perspective, and it personally inspires me to want to make the most of my time in the sun. Enjoy.
