Neil deGrasse Tyson is awesome. He is an engaging astrophysicist who has cuaght pop culture by the throat. I was late to the party on this one but ever since the I heard him on the Ron and Fez show, I’ve been completely on board. He is a total genius; one who has not only been meme-fied, but has also worked on an album with GZA (The Genius). He has his own radio show, StarTalk, where mixes pop culture and science in to a perfect blend. I mean look at all the insanely awesome people he has had on his show in the picture above. He even has a twitter, where he just ripped Prometheus a new one. His assessment of the film really isn’t far off, especially the Mission to Mars jab (I actually really liked Prometheus… I think). At the end of the day, Neil deGrasse Tyson is, simply put, a badass.
