Neil DeGrasse Tyson


On July 14th, the New Horizons spacecraft will fly by Pluto – sending back the first detailed views of that small world.  What will it see, and what will we learn?


Join an evening with Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, award-winning astrophysicist, author, and host of Cosmos for an evening of engaging conversation on science, exploration, and the world as we know it.
