The Sinbad of Science

When it comes to astrophysics, cosmology and space exploration few people on Earth carry as much clout as Neil deGrasse Tyson. Even before Stephen Colbert’s recent assertion that Tyson was his “favorite guest of all time,” People Magazine named him the “Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive” in 2000. Tyson has written 10 books ranging from New York Times bestseller “Death By Black Hole and Other Cosmic Quandaries” to the well-written, hilariously titled “The Pluto Files: The Rise and Fall of America’s Favorite Planet.” Currently, Tyson is helming the fascination "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" a 21st century update of Carl Sagan’s groundbreaking TV series “COSMOS.” Tyson will no doubt captivate the audience at the Winspear Opera House (2403 Flora St.) with his humorous take on the latest in space, pop astrophysics and other “COSMOS”-related topics in this special appearance. The event starts at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $20 to $100. For more information, visit
