Michigan Radio welcomes Neil deGrasse Tyson to Michigan

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Michigan Radio is pleased to welcome Astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson to Michigan for four live multi-media events in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Ann Arbor and Detroit, March 21-24, 2016. Dr. Tyson will present an evening of engaging conversation on science, exploration and the world as we know it.

Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson is the host of National Geographic's StarTalk, best-selling author and Director of the Hayden Planetarium. He guides the ship of imagination to transport viewers to the nucleus of an atom and the farthest reaches of the universe as he explores humanity's quest for understanding.

“I’ve put together an engaging multi-media presentation that brings the expanses of modern science directly to audience members. Fans love the Q&A sessions that rival the event itself,” says Dr. Tyson. In the past, he’s been asked a myriad of questions about everything from space elevators to parenting advice. Tyson says, “These are family-friendly events. I’ll frequently take questions from children since I’m fascinated with young ones who are interested in science.” 

Tickets go on sale to the  public on Friday, November 6 at 10 am. Tickets can be purchased at the links  below.
