Did You Know?
My great fear is that we've in fact been visited by intelligent aliens, but they chose not to make contact, on the conclusion that there's no sign of intelligent life on earth. We were sending signals out before we were doing it on purpose. Our early TV shows like 'I Love Lucy' and 'The Honeymooners' and that sort of thing - 'Howdy Doody'. These are our cultural emissaries.
First African American director of the American Museum of Natural History's Hayden Planetarium, in New York City. Tyson is also a researcher, a professor of astrophysics at Princeton University, and a general-interest science columnist. Author of books for nonspecialists on space and the universe (listed under Other Works).
