Absolutely, but space sciences is my field of study, so that's a given.

He's continuing the standard that Carl Sagan started.

He came to the University of Florida a few years back. The auditorium sold out in hours flat. All the hype I gathered was that folks just wanted to be within eye-shot of a modern celebrity figure. Nobody mentioned what the discussion was about the next day; they were just overjoyed to have a photo taken with him, or to get his autograph.

...in addition to promoting the field of science, he's a money-magnet. Smart dude.

I would die if this is what I was known for. I feel sorry for the guy.

And there's also the other group of idiots who hate him because Pluto isn't considered a planet anymore.

You go to Ohio State. Nobody thought about tickets. Poor Neil spoke to an empty auditorium.

Last year at my school (UWO) we had Bill Nye give a talk and this year it was Chris Hadfield.

I stayed home and played video games on both occasions.

I thought about going, but I bet it's going to be impossible to get into unless you line up super early.

Wait someone from my school (65,000 students) got a geography question wrong? Shit, I better forfeit my degree progress and transfer to a legitimate university.

That's a fine looking lecture hall

It's a room in our student union.

He came to mine a couple of weeks ago (also free). Would've liked to go but I had a lecture on at the same time so no chance. I'm not too bothered about it though
