Neil deGrasse Tyson: The Cosmic Perspective
Acclaimed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History is here at the Paramount for two evenings with two wholly different subjects. The bestselling author of such books as Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, Astrophysics for Young People in a Hurry, and Death By Black Hole, he is also the author of a brand-new book, co-written with Avis Lang, Accessory to War:The Unspoken Alliance Between Astrophysics and the Military (W.W. Norton).
“Fascinating....Retells the history of space exploration, and of the Cold War, excelling in bringing forth the entangled advances of science and military interests....The book’s message rings like a wake-up call.” — Marcelo Gleiser, NPR.
