Mentions

  • As host of NOVA scienceNOW, Tyson explained in a June 2008 episode that the terms "Dark Matter" and "Dark Energy" could just as easily have been called "Bert" and "Ernie".
  • In the Epilogue (p.257) of his 2012 book Space Chronicles, Tyson writes, "Imagine a life-form whose brainpower is to ours as ours is to a chimpanzee's. To such a species, our highest mental achievements would be trivial. Their toddlers, instead of learning their ABCs on Sesame Street, would learn multivariable calculus on Boolean Boulevard."
