To make America great again, according to tweets from astrophysicist, cosmologist, author and science communicator Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, we should "invest heavily in science and technology" and "make America smart again."

Guest: Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York City.

Dr. Tyson will be speaking about how "The Cosmic Perspective" profoundly influences what we think and feel about science, culture, politics and life itself on Thursday, January 19, at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
