NJPAC presents Neil deGrasse Tyson with This Just In: Latest Discoveries in the Universe

(NEWARK, NJ) -- New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) welcomes Neil deGrasse Tyson on Thursday, November 30 at 7:30pm. Spend a thought-provoking evening with astrophysicist, professor, and New York Times best-selling author Neil deGrasse Tyson of the Hayden Planetarium. The author of his latest book Starry Messenger: Cosmic Perspectives on Civilization. Tyson will discuss how a "cosmic perspective" profoundly influences what we think and feel about science, culture, politics, and life. Take a journey to the far reaches of the universe in this cosmically fascinating conversation.

The universe is 13.7 billion years old — and we’re still learning its incredible secrets. Who better to help us unpack the most exciting new discoveries of space and science than astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson? In this thought-provoking conversation, the New York Times best-selling author will explore a variety of cosmic hot topics, like the most recent findings of the James Webb Space Telescope. You’ll laugh. You’ll think. You’ll marvel at the wonder of the universe.

“We know a lot about the universe. But there’s even more that we don’t know,” says astrophysicist and Professor Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium, an award-winning lecturer, and one of the world’s foremost experts on the secrets of the universe. And his course The Inexplicable Universe: Unsolved Mysteries is the perfect gateway into this mind-bending and eye-opening subject. This visually stunning course, which has been honored with a 2013 Telly Award for Outstanding Educational Program, will transport you on a marvelous journey to the frontiers of the known (and unknown) universe and introduce you to tantalizing questions being addressed by the world’s top scientists. Undeniably engaging and fascinating, this presentation is a wonderful entrée to scientific pursuits that lie at the very heart of the history and nature of our universe.

A world-renowned science communicator, Neil deGrasse Tyson has transported viewers to the nucleus of an atom and to the farthest reaches of the universe. In addition to his work on television, he is a New York Times best-selling author whose books include Death by Black Hole & Other Cosmic QuandariesWelcome to the Universe, and last year’s Astrophysics for People in a Hurry.

Currently the head of NYC’s Hayden Planetarium and a research associate in the Department of Astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History, Tyson is the recipient of 20 honorary doctorates as well as the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, the highest award given by NASA to a non-government citizen.
