Neil DeGrasse Tyson: A Cosmic Perspective (NZ)

The most dangerous people in a free society are those who don’t know… It’s okay to not know. But if you don’t know, but think you do know … that is dangerous. Those are the signs of the end of an informed democracy.”

Think Inc., with support from Loop, Newstalk ZB, the University of Auckland, and the University of Canterbury, are supremely excited to announce for the first time in New Zealand, Dr Neil deGrasse Tyson!

A Cosmic Perspective will see the most famous face in modern science perform two shows across New Zealand to Auckland and Christchurch audiences. Both shows will feature a personal presentation by Dr Tyson himself, a fire-side chat with a local personality, and an audience Q&A session to finish.

Expert on star formation, exploding stars, dwarf galaxies, and the structure of our milky way, best-selling author, Emmy Award winner, recipient of nineteen honorary doctorates, and a man who was once named “Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive”, Dr Neil deGrasse Tyson will guide Kiwi audiences on a trip across the cosmos, and help attempt to make sense of some of our biggest questions.
