I adore Neil deGrasse Tyson. Every time I hear him speak, I am inspired. I want to read non-fiction and learn things. I want to pull out my worn copy of Cosmos and stare at the night sky and dream. I loved this short interview, especially his comments about parenting and his answer to the "most astounding fact about the universe", which also inspired this other video.
