Review: Neil deGrasse Tyson presentation at the Tobin Center
When I talk to my friends about it, they have no idea who he is. I thought the same thing the first time I went two years ago with my cousin. Tyson is animated in the way he speaks and explains things. He picks a topic and talks about it for three hours. The topics were not normal either.

The conference brings together professionals from various fields who share an interest in space — scientists, commercial satellite makers, as well as government and military officials — and as the invasion got underway, some of the attendees drifted to a television screen to watch the spectacle unfolding live on CNN. Whenever the anchor would announce a strike by, say, a cruise missile, employees of defense contractors in the crowd whose companies had helped make the missile would cheer. He also understood that some conflicts are justified. Or, Tyson says, consider Galileo. You can identify whether a ship is friend or foe from 10 times further away than you can without it! This would be great for your military security.
