Learn About Santa With Neil deGrasse Tyson

As a popular astrophysicist and television personality, people turn to Neil deGrasse Tyson for facts about a wide range of topics. He fields a fair number of space-related questions, but Tyson is a great and wise man who knows many things beyond the realm of outer space. Yesterday, Christmas Eve, Tyson took to Twitter to teach his more than 900,000 followers a little about Santa Claus.

It doesn’t appear that anything in particular sparked Tyson to write the series of tweets about the man in red, except a bit of holiday spirit and the desire to inform the world. What’s an average work day at the North Pole? Is Rudolph’s nose an effective light source through clouds?
