Re: I've got tickets to see Neil deGrasse Tyson on October 19th!
The Neil deGrasse Tyson talk was wonderful and I got my money's worth. Much of his talk revolved around the poor state of science and math education in the United States in comparison to other places throughout the world. I knew we weren't doing well but the statistics he provided were a bit startling.
At the end of the talk and the Q&A session I was hoping there would be a book signing or opportunity to shake his hand and talk to him. But he exited the stage never to be seen again. My hope was to invite him to an email interview or a live chat with us to discuss Astrophysics for People in a Hurry
, but the opportunity just wasn't there. Sorry guys.
