7:30 PM at The Bushnell
SPECIAL EVENT: An Evening with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson
- Neil deGrasse Tyson
SPECIAL EVENT! Presented in partnership with The Bushnell.
NOTE: This special event is not part of The CT Forum's 2016-2017 Season subscription.
Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, award-winning astrophysicist, author, and host of FOX's Cosmos, is the recipient of 18 honorary doctorates and the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, the highest award given by NASA to a non-government citizen. His contributions to the public appreciation of the cosmos have been recognized by the International Astronomical Union in their official naming of asteroid 13123 Tyson.
On a lighter side, Tyson was voted Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive by People Magazine in 2000. Join Dr. Tyson for an evening of engaging conversation on science, exploration and the world as we know it.
Tyson will be speaking about the topic, "The Cosmic Perspective." There is no view of the world as emotionally potent as the one granted by a cosmic perspective. It's one that sees Earth as a planet in a vast empty universe. It profoundly influences what we think and feel about science, culture, politics, and life itself.
This event is SOLD OUT.
