I have a new favorite person in the world, and it is astrophysicist Niel deGrasse Tyson. A recent video went viral online and it hit me pretty hard. America ended their maned space shuttle missions last year and America's ability to push the frontiers of technology and science in space has grinded to a halt. There is no public demand or desire to boldly go where no man has gone before in America, and that makes me sad.
Here is Niel talking about "his man" Sir Isaac Newton. I love the way this guy talks about science.
I also saw this recently! If you don't know who at least two of the three men below are, then we can't be friends.
