I was just watching a science-chat interview with Stephen Colbert (somewhat out of character) and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson (~1hr30). I've seen clips of this interview floating around the net for a while, but hadn't seen the whole thing until today.
Tyson is a public figure I rather admire; he's an incredible science enthusiast and educator, even though I have very little interest in astrophysics (I'm a biologist). His enthusiasm and ability to articulate concepts into lay terms are incredible, and his pursuit of public scientific literacy is exceedingly admirable. Add in Colbert's humour, and you get a winning combination.
Hope you guys enjoy the video.
