It was mostly Dr. Tyson taking questions from the audience and giving these really good in depth answers but not so long that you would get bored. He has a way of explaining things that most people can understand. He was also great with the kids...continued

My 14-year-old son attended with his dad, as a birthday present for my husband (his dad). Quote: "Really awesome!"

The very knowledgeable Dr Tyson fielded questions and offered excellent explanations for the lay person about all things space.

Description

Please join KQED for a conversation with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, host of NOVA scienceNOW, and Paula Apsell, senior executive producer of NOVA and NOVA scienceNOW. They will discuss NOVA’s The Pluto Files, which is based on Dr. Tyson’s book by the same name. Since its discovery in 1930, Pluto has held a warm place in the public imagination. So, when the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium stopped calling Pluto a planet, Tyson found himself at the center of a firestorm-led by angry Pluto-loving elementary school students. What is it about this cold, distant rock that captures so many hearts?
