Quick. Name a popular 21st century astrophysicist. Chances are you can only think of one: Neil deGrasse Tyson. The quick-witted Tyson joins the ranks of Bill Nye and Carl Sagan for making science downright cool. A god among redditors, fans appreciate Tyson for not only his knowledge, but his zingers aimed at James Cameron (who included a historically inaccurate night sky in Titanic) and more recently, tweets on Gravity's flaws. He presents science in a way that is accessible for the every-person, making it interesting and not overwhelming. This month, he makes a special, FREE, appearance at Grand Valley State University's fieldhouse to present his lecture, "Science as a Way of Knowing," where he'll prove that without science, you're just a big dummy. (Our words, not his.) Get your tickets at GVSU's 20/20 Information Desk at the Kirkhof Center on the Allendale campus. Or, you can get them online for a small handling fee, because that's what you get for being lazy.
