Most people hear the word “astrophysicist” and think, “Uhhh…I’m a Sagittarius, so…yeah, they’re the people who do horoscopes.”
No, dumbass, that’s a charlatan, erm, astrologist. Say that statement to actual astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and you’ll find yourself in a headlock.
The host of Cosmos, the head of the Hayden Planetarium, and the man who made “We got a badass over here!” a famous meme, was a high school and college wrestler. While working on his PhD at Harvard, deGrasse Tyson was laying the smack on the other Ivy league teams. He invented a move-not by pinning a guy down to see how long he could, but by using physics. That’s how you mix schoolwork with recreation, y’all!
He’s still got it. He jokingly pinned Bill Nye the Science Guy at a lecture. It’s adorable, and educational. If you don’t love both of them, you have no soul.
Screw Hulk Hogan and his bandana, brother. Neil deGrasse Tyson is a galactic badass over here! Know more.
