‘Cosmos’ host Tyson to speak Oct. 22 at UIndy
Jul 23, 2014

Internationally known astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, host of the updated Cosmos science television series, will deliver a public presentation Oct. 22 at the University of Indianapolis.

Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, will speak at 7 p.m. in Ruth Lilly Performance Hall of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center. The appearance is part of UIndy’s Blanche E. Penrod Lecture Series. Details on seating will be released as available.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which premiered March 9 as a weekly feature on the Fox and National Geographic networks, is a high-tech reboot of the groundbreaking 1980 PBS series that demystified deep science for general audiences and made host Carl Sagan a pop icon. Sagan’s widow and collaboratorAnn Druyan and writer-director-actor Seth McFarlane are executive producers of the new series.
