Get Tickets to See Neil deGrasse Tyson

Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts
February 25, 2015 @ 7:30 p.m.

Spend an evening with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson to ponder some of the scientific wonders of the universe. The host of FOX’s Cosmos will take on science and exploration as he engages the audience in a lecture of learning, fun facts and food for thought. If you’re wondering about the sphere of influence of this astrophysicist, a letter from Tyson to the iconic film director James Cameron resulted in a change of the constellations in the blockbuster Titanic. He had been correct that the stars had not been aligned as they were historically on that night.

Expand and enhance your worldview while you take in a few fascinating trivia points. Well known in the scientific circuit, Tyson has established his extraordinary expertise as an award-winning author and resource in the study of science (far beyond the example of his expert film opinion). Come out for this unique event, which will be followed by a meet-and-greet in case you have any burning questions to ask.

Tyson earned his BA in Physics from Harvard and his PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia. While acquiring his advanced degree, he focused his professional research in star formation, exploding stars, dwarf galaxies and the structure of the Milky Way.

Dr. Tyson has put several notches under his professional belt since his superlative education. Of note, he was the first occupant of the Frederick P. Rose Directorship of the Hayden Planetarium. Now you can benefit from this brilliant work by attending the event on Wednesday, February 25th at 7:30 p.m. Get your tickets online and head to the Merriam Theater at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.
