It was a pleasure to have Neil deGrasse Tyson at the San Jose Center for Performing Arts for "An Astrophysicist Goes To The Movies", taken from his selection of many talks. I'd actually love to see all of them :)



Like last times, he had lots of fun slides, it was a great evening (a bit over 2H):

He then talked about a lot of movies, which was the point of course :)
