Part Two. Your second knowledge drop for the day comes in the form of this chat with Stephen Colbert and Neil deGrasse Tyson. Neil is an excellent humanizer of astronomy and science in general. He grew up in the Bronx, wrestled in high school, and now fights passionately for science in NASA and beyond.
