Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson to deliver keynote address at Lehigh University's 145th commencement →

Neil deGrasse Tyson, renowned astrophysicist, space exploration advocate, author and commentator, will deliver the keynote address at Lehigh University’s 145th commencement in May 2013.

“Neil deGrasse Tyson has a rare gift for communicating the excitement of basic science, and he is a tremendous advocate for its importance to our nation,” President Alice P. Gast said in a Lehigh News Center story. “Neil inspires us to dream big and to think about our world and beyond. We are extremely excited to have someone of his stature share his passion for science with us.”

At the commencement ceremony, Tyson will receive an honorary doctor of science degree from Lehigh. The degree will be the 15th honorary doctorate Tyson has been awarded. NASA awarded Tyson with its Distinguished Public Service Medal, which is the highest award given to a non-government citizen by the program. In 2007, TIME magazine named Tyson one of the most influential people in the world.

Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson – The Full Interview
http://www.freepresshouston.com/submissions/dr-neil-degrasse-tyson-the-full-interview/


Science in America has taken a backseat in recent years to many other things, but there is one person who is trying to reinvigorate people’s interest and show how important it is to humanity’s survival – Neil deGrasse Tyson.  Dr. Tyson has a laundry list of accomplishments from writing over 10 books to serving under President Bush on the Moon, Mars and Beyond Commission to being the current director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City.  FPH had 30 minutes with a guy who is, at this moment, probably the most prolific and famous scientist in the world.  People Magazine’s “Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive”, one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” and a master of Latin ballroom dancing.  I mean, the guy has a comet named after him.


FPH – In one of your statements online you said, “When you’re scientifically literate, the world looks very different to you.  It’s a particular way of questioning what you see and hear.”  Can you expand on that and tell me how it affects your relationships with people?


NDT – First off, thanks for bringing that up.  I think it’s a very important concept and idea.  Many people think of science as just a topic that they either learned or didn’t in school.  Like, oh did you learn about the War of 1812.  I think for many people it’s compartmentalized as just something that they either know or don’t know.  Without reflecting on the value to how you think for being scientifically literate.  Because as you walk around through life, things will happen in front of you.  Someone will try to sell you a product that has a claim that’s scientifically testable.  Someone will make a statement about the gas mileage of your car or the octane level or the health benefits of one food or another or the fat content or the calorie content.  Or they’ll tell you about the chemistry of some corporate plant – the chemicals coming out of a corporate plant or the molecules that are in the air.  There are so many things around us that become transparent to you when you’re scientifically literate and they’re otherwise opaque to you if you’re not.  So, science literacy is often people think of it is as do you know how your microwave oven works or how does an internal combustion engine work.

This ring features a complete band of Gibeon Meteorite framed and mounted in an 18k gold band. The meteorite has been etched with nitric acid to reveal the characteristic patterns, or Widmanstatten figures, of iron meteorites, and set with 9 gemstones representing the planets of our Solar System. Mercury is represented by a rust colored Sapphire, Venus a golden Sapphire, Earth an irradiated blue Diamond, Mars a Ruby, Jupiter an Opal, Saturn a Cats Eye Chrysoberyl with an inlaid 24k gold ring, Uranus a green Sapphire, Neptune a blue Sapphire and Pluto a black Diamond. What really makes this ring special is that the band of meteorite spins independent of the gold ring, so when it is on, the planets rotate around the wearer’s finger.

  

Can we just discuss how Pluto is on this ring?

I need it so bad



O, Pluto…sigh….

After reading a few blogs today, I decided to make this little graphic for your visual reference. All my sci-fi friends should have no issue figuring it out.
