Neil deGrasse Tyson: Mark Watney v. Hal from “2001”
How cool is Neil deGrasse Tyson? Not only did he delight the nearly packed house at the Morrison Center with this critiques, comments and insights about movies we all enjoy. He was smart, funny, self-effacing and brilliant. I think if he had taught my eighth-grade math class, I might better understand algebra.
Tyson answered questions from the audience — even though some were a totally off topic — and he took time to answer one more geek question from me afterwards at a post-show meet-and-greet with about 60 people, who each got a chance to ask a question.
He also offered his impressions of Boise.
Neil, come back soon.
