Whether discussing the universe's origins as host of NOVA's "scienceNOW" or asserting that Pluto is a not a planet on "The Colbert Report," astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson translates the universe's complexities for a broad audience.

Known as the great explainer of all things cosmic, Tyson first became known in the astronomy community by lecturing on the subject at the age of fifteen. He is currently the director of New York's Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, where he also teaches. Tyson has written seven popular books including the bestselling Death by Black Hole and the memoir The Sky Is Not The Limit.

His professional research explores star formation, dwarf galaxies, exploding stars, and the structure of the Milky Way, topics which he writes about in his long running "Universe" column in Natural History magazine. Tyson's varied honors include the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal and People Magazine's 2000 "Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive" - City Arts & Lectures

He manages the Fulldome Mailing List and also maintain web pages related to standards development for fulldome video. His work at the Museum relates strongly to the Hayden Planetarium's Digital Universe dataset, with an emphasis on creating content for the planetarium "space shows," including Cosmic Collisions and The Search for Life.

Hello! Nice to see you again! If you've made it here, your quest is over. You've won, I've lost, you are truly a brony amongst high standards and regards. In return for your perilous endeavor, I provide you this golden star, and my regards. But, there is a problem.


This is not the end. You must go through the quest again, but this time, find the numbers in the posts that lead you here, there are about 7 total, and you must find them and put them in order from which they appear. (they appear in linear order, so fret not, you just need to go back to the start.) And then after doing so, enter the numbers in the correct order into the funny junk URL (IE: Funnyj unk.com/funn y_pictures/XXXXXXX) to find a new post, which will take you to a place you've never thought possible. A place of unimaginable splendor and freedom, a place you will never want to leave.

Good luck! Allons-y, Allons-o, as they say!
