Neil deGrasse Tyson and Ann Druyen Talk Cosmos and Gravity at SXSW [Video]
Do we want to be around them or just be them? We can't decide.
Not everybody gets to be at SXSW right now, and even fewer of us get to hang out with Neil deGrasse Tyson and Cosmos producer Ann Druyen. That’s why we’re happy we found this set of videos from the Samsung What’s Trending SXSW blogger lounge, so we can live vicariously through this lucky audience.
Above, Ann Druyen explains how the Spaceship of the Imagination is powered in equal parts by skepticism and imagination, and how the legacy of Cosmos lives on beyond the work of Carl Sagan in this new “visual experience”. Below, Neil talks about his fake feud with the film Gravity, and how all his griping was actually a massive compliment.
