Neil DeGrasse Tyson's Tour of the Universe

REGISTER

Nothing about the cosmos fails to excite the boundless enthusiasm of Neil deGrasse Tyson: the atmosphere’s chemistry, Einstein lensing, dark energy, how galaxies cluster – and even the questions we have yet to pose.

In hundreds of lectures, on television and in podcasts, he radiates the wonderment he felt as a 9-year old kid from the Bronx visiting the Hayden planetarium for the first time; he was so moved by the imprint of the night sky that he felt called to astronomy by the universe.

He’s been drinking in the cosmos ever since and, with the images emerging from the Webb telescope, his thirst has barely been quenched. “As our area of knowledge grows, so too does the perimeter of our ignorance.”

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Cultural Center is honored to welcome Neil deGrasse Tyson to untangle cosmic mysteries and share his abiding passion during a multi-media tour of the universe as captured by the Webb telescope, parked in space a million miles from home: images of galaxies formed 13 billion years ago; of galaxy clusters halfway toward the edge of the universe; and of stellar nurseries long hidden from view inside gas clouds.

An astrophysicist and Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson is America’s most renowned translator of science for popular culture. Author of 18 books, host of NOVA, Cosmos and documentary films, he has received dozens of awards, including NASA’s Distinguished Public Service Medal, and was selected as one of “The 10 Most Influential People in Science” by Discover magazine.
