Here’s a fun fact: I don’t know a darn thing about Neil deGrasse Tyson, except that he’s awesome and hilarious, which is probably all I really need to know. I do kind of look up to this guy, because we share a lot of views on some of the world’s large, intertwined topics, not the least of which is the role a parent should play in their childrens’ lives and education and exposure to science. If you want to laugh, to think, and to be amazed, I suggest you follow him on Twitter; his username is @neiltyson.

He is featured in Parade Magazine today, where they happen to mention (as the overarching reason for the feature) that he will be hosting a new Cosmos miniseries that will show on Fox and National Geographic Channel. Those who saw the original series with Carl Sagan (I have not yet had the privilege, FYI) probably know that it was a huge thing. I’m hoping I at least get a chance to see the new series – at least then I would get something out of having full cable television for the first time in over a decade.
