Thanks for this Chris. I've just watched 30 minutes of the second video - pure joy. Apparently, the first one isn't available to Canadian viewers, so I wasn't able to check that one out.

Sorry you can't watch that video, LevV. I'm curious why they would block that video to Canadian viewers. But there are enough other great interviews to enjoy. Tyson is sure a master communicator.

Post Re: YouTube videos on "Astrophysics for People in a Hurry"
Okay Chris, I have watched the first, and part of the second interviews with Dr. Tyson. I have also purchased the book and read the first two chapters, and obviously, the Preface. My point (other than reaffirming my admiration for him) is that if you still need a discussion leader, I will gladly volunteer for the position.
