2019/03/26 Neil deGrasse Tyson at San Jose Center for Performing Arts
π 2019-03-26 01:01 in Outings
Like many, I'm a big fan of Neil deGrasse Tyson, so it was a pleasure to see him at the San Jose Center for Performing Arts. He gave us one of many talks he has (around 20), "An Astrophysicist Reads The Newspaper".

He had lots of fun slides, it was a great evening (about 2H)


the slide that can't be unseen, why 'pluto' is called 'pluto', and it's still not a planet
