Neil deGrasse Tyson é um divulgador científico, dramaturgo e astrofísico dos Estados Unidos. É atualmente o Diretor Frederick P. Rose do Planetário Hayden no Centro Rose para a Terra e o Espaço e investigador associado do departamento de astrofísica no Museu Americano de História Natural. De 2006 a 2011 foi apresentador do programa de televisão de educação científica NOVA scienceNOW, no canal de televisão PBS, e tem sido um convidado frequente dos programas The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Real Time with Bill Maher e Jeopardy!.Em 2014 apresentou a série Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.

Neil deGrasse Tyson criticou James Cameron por este ter colocado o céu noturno errado numa das cenas finais do filme Titanic, exibido em 1997. Tyson enviou um e-mail a Cameron um tanto quanto sarcástico, em 1912, naquela época do ano, naquela posição no Atlântico, quando Rose olhava as estrelas, "esse não é o céu estrelado que Rose viu." James Cameron acabou por corrigir o erro na reedição 3D do Titanic em 2013. Esta foi uma das poucas alterações que o realizador teria feito.

„The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it.“

— Neil deGrasse Tyson

„For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.“

— Neil deGrasse Tyson
Context: The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And along the way, lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.

„Creativity is seeing what everyone else sees, but then thinking a new thought that has never been thought before and expressing it somehow.“

— Neil deGrasse Tyson
Context: Creativity is seeing what everyone else sees, but then thinking a new thought that has never been thought before and expressing it somehow. It could be with art, a sculpture, music or even in science. The difference, however, between scientific creativity and any other kind of creativity, is that no matter how long you wait, no one else will ever compose "Beethoven's Ninth Symphony" except for Beethoven. No matter what you do, no one else will paint Van Gogh's "Starry Night." Only Van Gogh could do that because it came from his creativity.Whereas in science, you can't just make stuff up and presume that it is a proper account of nature. At the end of the day, you have to answer to nature. Since everyone has nature to answer to, your creativity is simply discovering something about the natural world that somebody else would have eventually discovered exactly the same way. They might have come through a different path, but they would have landed in the same place.Even though we name theorems and equations after the people who discover them — Newton's laws of gravity, Kepler's laws of planetary motion — somebody else would have discovered them afterward. It's that simple. Your creativity is not a boundless creativity.

„Yes, the universe had a beginning. Yes, the universe continues to evolve.“

— Neil deGrasse Tyson
Context: Yes, the universe had a beginning. Yes, the universe continues to evolve. And yes, every one of our body's atoms is traceable to the big bang and to the thermonuclear furnace within high-mass stars. We are not simply in the universe, we are part of it. We are born from it. One might even say we have been empowered by the universe to figure itself out — and we have only just begun.

„The best educators are the ones that inspire their students. That inspiration comes from a passion that teachers have for the subject they're teaching. Most commonly, that person spent their lives studying that subject, and they bring an infectious enthusiasm to the audience.“

— Neil deGrasse Tyson
Context: The best educators are the ones that inspire their students. That inspiration comes from a passion that teachers have for the subject they're teaching. Most commonly, that person spent their lives studying that subject, and they bring an infectious enthusiasm to the audience.I think many people have that enthusiasm, but they are prevented from being teachers because they didn't go through the teacher mill. Now you have teachers who have been through the teacher mill, yet they have no capacity to inspire anyone at all. It's the inspired student that continues to learn on their own. That's what separates the real achievers in the world from those who pedal along, finishing assignments.
