Some big announcements came out of SXSW yesterday.

Supernova heartthrob/astrophysicist/author/educator Neil deGrasse Tyson will participate in a keynote interview for Interactive on Saturday, March 8 at 2 p.m. So for the love of laminates, if you've ever known anyone in a power position at SXSW, now is the time to send that singing telegram and forcibly reconnect.

You'll see Tyson again during the festival cycles. SXSW Film announced it will preview COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey, the Tyson-hosted reboot of Carl Sagan's beloved '80s educational space program. Set to air on Fox later this year, the series comes with built-in panache with Ann Druyan on board again as Executive Producer and Tyson poised to guide a new generation around this pale blue dot.

Unlike the musical portion of South By, lugging gear won't get you inside these special events. You're going to need a badge. Rates increase at end of day today.
