Words of Wisdom from Neil deGrasse Tyson


Inspired by the acclaimed “Sagan Series,” Evan Schurr has assembled a series of powerful statements by famous astrophysicist and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson, who is worried that Americans have stopped dreaming about tomorrow, that in the past “we reaped the benefits from economic growth because you had people wanting to become scientists and engineers, who are the people who enable tomorrow to exist today… without it, we might as well just slide back to the cave, because that’s where we’re headed right now, broke.” Tyson implores us to start dreaming again, to spend money on our future, to advance frontiers. We have to admit, we got goosebumps.
