Neil deGrasse Tyson: Certified Space Geek

Star Power - As an Astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson Is A Universal Expert, Washington Post

"Tyson is a 6-foot-4 African American who today is wearing a dark suit and a vest knitted with white suns, each with a human face. It's the vest of a guy who (a) believes he is the universe's ambassador to Earth and (b) does not care what you think of his vest. Part of being a geek, Tyson says, is not worrying about whether you fit in, and for as long as he can remember, he's been a geek. Last month he took an online test to determine exactly how geeky he is. He scored high."
