Are we alone in the universe? | GrrlScientist

I was a postdoc at the same institution, the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is director of the Hayden Planetarium. As a result of my proximity, I often got to watch him in action. His kindness and passion combined with his truly impressive oratory about science, were inspirational. I thought I’d share just one insight from Dr Tyson, an insight that ties in nicely with the “elements of the periodic table” series that I share on this blog every Friday morning. In this video clip, Dr Tyson explains one of his “disturbing thoughts” that might keep his audience awake at night: are we alone in the universe?
