Dr. Tyson is an award-winning astrophysicist, host of Star Talk Radio and TV Show, Nova Science Now on PBS, and FOX’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, the 21st century continuation of Carl Sagan’s landmark TV Series. He is a New York Times best-selling author of 10 books and frequent guest on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. He is the recipient of 19 honorary doctorates and the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, the highest award given by NASA to non-government citizens. The U.S. National Academy of Sciences awarded Tyson the Public Welfare Medal in 2015 for his “extraordinary role in exciting the public about the wonders of science.” His massive appeal as a teacher and intellectual leads to sold-out lectures around the world and inspires young and old to take an interest in the universe around them.
