Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is the new host of Cosmos.


Neil deGrasse Tyson is…well, a dude! Dressed in cowboy boots and an embroidered shirt he represents the essence of ultracool nerdiness. Trained as a wrestler in high school he soon became the self-appointed “Defender of the Geeks.” Now one could easily argue he is their de factor Leader.

He is America’s Most Popular Scientist, has been voted the Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive, and will be Hosting the new “Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey” which is a sequel to Carl Sagan’s hit television show from the 1980s.
