Neil deGrasse Tyson: Vest swag.

Neil deGrasse Tyson strives to makes science understandable, interesting, and... cool. So far, the astrophysicist has done a pretty stellar job. Between hosting Cosmos on FOX, calling out Gravity for its scientific inaccuracies, and being The Colbert Report's most frequent guest, he's become an Internet darling with a devoted fan base. (Cosmos was doing quite well on Sunday's before Game of Thrones returned and sapped its ratings. Apparently dragons trump science.) Tyson will bring his vast wealth of knowledge and charismatic wit to Seattle this fall for a show at the Paramount Theatre on September 15. 

Tickets for Neil deGrasse Tyson's Seattle appearance go on sale this Thursday, April 17 at 10am on stgpresents.org and run $31–$71.
