On Monday night, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson entered the Colbert Nation to take on Stephen Colbert. It was clearly a battle of wits.
Tyson was on The Colbert Report to promote Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey which airs on the Fox Network on Sunday night for a 13 episode run.
I watched the first episode on Sunday and thought it was well done. I am looking forward to watching the rest of the series.
The interview between Tyson and Colbert shows some of the issues that the series will address and why science and exploration are important things that must be encouraged rather than discouraged.
