This Event Is Sold Out

If anyone makes science – astrophysics, even – cool, it’s Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Host of NOVA scienceNOW on KPBS TV, Dr. Tyson may be well-known for his appearances with the likes of Jon Stewart on The Daily Show and Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report, but his knowledge and know-how is no joking matter. Tyson earned his BA in Physics from Harvard and his PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia. He’s written several books including the latest The Pluto Files: The Rise and Fall of America's Favorite Planet and is the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. In 2008, Dr. Tyson was also voted one of Discover Magazine’s ten most influential people in science. And did we mention in 2000 PEOPLE Magazine named him the “Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive?”

This rock star of a scientist is coming to San Diego’s Reuben H. Fleet Science Center on Thursday, July 23 at 7:30pm.

Joining him will be Paula S. Apsell, Senior Executive Producer of NOVA and Director of the WGBH Science Unit. Under her leadership, NOVA is the most popular on-going science series on primetime television and on the Web—winning every major broadcasting award, including the Emmy, the Peabody, the AAAS Westinghouse Science Journalism Award, and the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Gold Baton.

Any chance a second show will be added? This sold out so quickly -- only a day after the notice was sent out!

Ditto...I really wanted to bring my son to this lecture. If I had known it would've sold out so soon, I would've purchased the tickets that day. :-/
