Neil deGrasse Tyson è un astrofisico e divulgatore scientifico statunitense, direttore dell'Hayden Planetarium del Rose Center for Earth and Space di New York. Il centro è parte dell'American Museum of Natural History, dove Tyson fondò il Dipartimento di Astrofisica nel 1997 e divenne un ricercatore associato dal 2003.

Nato a Manhattan, New York, Tyson cominciò ad interessarsi di astronomia all'età di nove anni dopo aver visitato l'Hayden Planetarium. Dopo la laurea in The Bronx High School of Science, dove fu direttore del Physical Science Journal, completò un corso di laurea di fisica ad Harvard nel 1980. Dopo aver ricevuto il master in astronomia alla University of Texas at Austin nel 1983, conseguì il master e il dottorato in astrofisica alla Columbia University. Per i tre anni successivi, fu un ricercatore post dottorato nella Princeton University, e nel 1994, entra a far parte del Hayden Planetarium come scienziato e la facoltà di Princeton come ricercatore e docente in visita. Nel 1996, divenne direttore del planetario e curò il progetto di ricostruzione del valore di $210 milioni che fu completato nel 2000.

Dal 1995 al 2005, Tyson scrisse saggi mensili nel "Universe", rubrica per la rivista Natural History, alcune delle quali furono pubblicate nel suo libro Death by Black Hole . Durante lo stesso periodo, scrisse una rubrica mensile nella rivista Star Date, rispondendo alle domande riguardo l'universo sotto il nome di "Merlin". Lo stesso materiale della rubrica apparse nei suoi libri Merlin's Tour of the Universe e Just Visiting This Planet . Tyson servì nel 2001 una commissione governativa sul futuro dell'industria aerospaziale americana, e nel 2004 sulla commissione Moon, Mars and Beyond. Nello stesso anno ricevette il NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal. Dal 2006 al 2011, presentò lo show televisivo NOVA ScienceNow su PBS e dal 2009 il podcast settimanale Star Talk. Nel 2014 presentò la serie televisiva Cosmos: Odissea nello spazio, un reboot della serie Cosmos famoso programma americano degli anni ottanta sull'astronomia e divulgazione scientifica condotto dall'astrofisico e scrittore Carl Sagan. La National Academy of Sciences riconobbe a Tyson la Public Welfare Medal nel 2015 per il suo " ruolo straordinario nell'emozionare il pubblico riguardo alle meraviglie della scienza".

Frasi Neil deGrasse Tyson

„The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it.“

—  Neil deGrasse Tyson
Quotes from Bill Maher show website, quotes of the show, Google searches showing poor results before February 4th (pages which were updated since their original, pre-feb. 4th posting date).

„For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.“

—  Neil deGrasse Tyson
Context: The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And along the way, lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.

„The best educators are the ones that inspire their students. That inspiration comes from a passion that teachers have for the subject they're teaching. Most commonly, that person spent their lives studying that subject, and they bring an infectious enthusiasm to the audience.“

—  Neil deGrasse Tyson
Context: The best educators are the ones that inspire their students. That inspiration comes from a passion that teachers have for the subject they're teaching. Most commonly, that person spent their lives studying that subject, and they bring an infectious enthusiasm to the audience.I think many people have that enthusiasm, but they are prevented from being teachers because they didn't go through the teacher mill. Now you have teachers who have been through the teacher mill, yet they have no capacity to inspire anyone at all. It's the inspired student that continues to learn on their own. That's what separates the real achievers in the world from those who pedal along, finishing assignments.

„Yes, the universe had a beginning. Yes, the universe continues to evolve.“

—  Neil deGrasse Tyson
Context: Yes, the universe had a beginning. Yes, the universe continues to evolve. And yes, every one of our body's atoms is traceable to the big bang and to the thermonuclear furnace within high-mass stars. We are not simply in the universe, we are part of it. We are born from it. One might even say we have been empowered by the universe to figure itself out — and we have only just begun.

„Creativity is seeing what everyone else sees, but then thinking a new thought that has never been thought before and expressing it somehow.“

—  Neil deGrasse Tyson
Context: Creativity is seeing what everyone else sees, but then thinking a new thought that has never been thought before and expressing it somehow. It could be with art, a sculpture, music or even in science. The difference, however, between scientific creativity and any other kind of creativity, is that no matter how long you wait, no one else will ever compose "Beethoven's Ninth Symphony" except for Beethoven. No matter what you do, no one else will paint Van Gogh's "Starry Night." Only Van Gogh could do that because it came from his creativity.Whereas in science, you can't just make stuff up and presume that it is a proper account of nature. At the end of the day, you have to answer to nature. Since everyone has nature to answer to, your creativity is simply discovering something about the natural world that somebody else would have eventually discovered exactly the same way. They might have come through a different path, but they would have landed in the same place.Even though we name theorems and equations after the people who discover them — Newton's laws of gravity, Kepler's laws of planetary motion — somebody else would have discovered them afterward. It's that simple. Your creativity is not a boundless creativity.
