As much as I love books and literature, science has always been my first love. I truly believe that science, tempered by humanity and promoted and explained by great story-tellers will lead us into a future we can all be proud of.
It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Neil deGrasse Tyson. He’s one of those scientists who has been able to appeal to the popular consciousness without compromising his scientific integrity. He’s a scientist AND a great story teller. He’s charming and captivating and still smart as hell.
Adjectives like “awesome” and “fantastic” and “amazing” really don’t seem like enough for this man. He’s incredible and I can’t say enough great things about him. On top of everything else, his sense of humor is plainly displayed through his multiple appearances on The Daily Show..

and on his Twitter.
I’m just trying to create a place where the Twitterverse meets the Universe. I’m happy to know that I occasionally succeed.

Ahh… I think I’m in love… John Stewart agrees.
