I like Neil DeGrasse Tyson.  He’s up there, in my book, with Sagan and Gould and Greene as one of the Great Explainers.  One reason, he has a terrific sense of humor.

  1. Thanks for that, Mark! The reason I like Tyson is the same reason that Leonard Bernstein is one of my heros. Great intelligence combined with passion, wit and the urge to help laymen understand!

    Yeah, Tyson's a hoot. We need scientists like him to tempt people to take that first step toward learning new things about science.
