Cool Science - N.dG.T.

Meet Neil deGrasse Tyson.

He's the director of the Hayden Planetarium. He's appeared on The Colbert Report, The Daily Show, and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He answers astronomy questions posed to him by random netizens on reddit, and gives dozens of public talks to school kids.

Noted science writer Carl Zimmer has recently written a fairly glowing profile of him, that appeared in a well-read magazine.

He hosts episodes of NOVA for PBS, and Fox will re-boot Cosmos with him in front.

But it was his AP stock photo (see right) from this NPR book review that drew my eye - when's the last time being a scientist looked so cool?
