Neil deGrasse Tyson: The Most Astounding Fact, by Gavin Aung Than

(Reblogged from Zen Pencils)

Zen Pencils is a website launched in February 2012 by Gavin Aung Than, a freelance illustrator living in Melbourne, Australia. On Zen pencils you will find inspirational quotes from famous people adapted into cartoons. The site is updated once a week, every Tuesday (Australian Eastern Standard time). What type of quotes does Gavin adapt? Anything and everything. Poets to Presidents, comedians to colonels – anyone who inspires him, challenges his way of thinking, wakes him up or just makes him laugh.

Neil deGrasse Tyson (1958-) is an astrophysicist, director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York, TV host and one of the current rockstars of the science world. He’s gained mainstream and pop-culture fame thanks to his books, TV show and frequent appearances on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. Like the late Carl Sagan, Tyson has the ability to communicate the wonders of science to a mainstream audience with charisma and a sense of humour. It’s fitting then that Tyson will be hosting the upcoming sequel to Sagan’s iconic series Cosmos. Tyson also has a great podcast, StarTalk Radio.
