Some people love astrophysicist/science educator Neil deGrasse Tyson for his work at the Hayden Planetarium, others for his hit show Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. We’re mostly impressed by the science rock star’s hilarious Twitter feed and the fact that he bikes home from work every day. If you’re tired of replaying his old witty interviews with Jon Stewart, catch the legend live tonight at the Pantages. We hope he’ll discuss the plausibility of hoverboard invention within the next nine months, but whether or not he takes his Back to the Future Twitter bit onstage or not, you’re bound to leave with a bigger brain and more than a few laughs.
