The Most Astounding Fact

Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson was asked by a reader of TIME magazine, “What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?” for the magazines “10 Questions for Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson” feature, this is his answer. The answer itself is pretty astonding, but when it’s played over video & photos from NASA, BBC, and others (spliced by film maker Max Schlickenmeyer) it brings it to a different level for me. A beautiful answer on a beautiful backdrop. Degrasse Tyson, who has honorary degrees from no less than 17 universities (according to wiki) and is the director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, as well as host of NOVA scienceNOW, has the ability to explain the very obtuse and grandiosely complicated matters of space and science in a beautifully simple unpretentious way.  Hopefully this will make us all look up at the sky and wonder about the phenomenon that is life – and feel a little more connected not only to things far away, but close as well.
