A cross section of science on the cyberscreen

Stephen Colbert Interviews Neil DeGrasse Tyson


Stephen Colbert is a smart science fan and often features great science book authors and scientists on his show, The Colbert Report. I also appreciate his funny takes on scientific topics such as tissue engineered meat, the LHC and more!

Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson has appeared on The Colbert Report six times. What a boon for the world of science that Colbert is willing to feature science and science personalities who will make science seem enjoyable for the general public.

Stephen Colbert, out of character from his show, interviews Dr. Tyson at the Kimberley Academy in Montclair, New Jersey.

An hour and a half of great banter and insights!


The views expressed are those of the author and are not necessarily those of Scientific American.
