The Universe Is In Us
The Most Astounding Fact from Max Schlickenmeyer on Vimeo.
A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to be inadvertently introduced to the inspiration that is Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and since that day he has become my hero. The other night I had a chance to see him speak in person again, it just made me even more of a fan. Here is a man who is not only an accomplished academic, but also someone with charisma. He has the gift of being a captivating public speaker, and as a result, can make even the most average person (myself) excited about science and space exploration. He makes me want to jump out of my seat and go study physics, or go to a classroom and inspire kids; at the very least, he gives me hope for the future.
