While going about my daily search of science sites, I have found some interesting information that deserves to be reiterated and expounded upon.
I want to share is a video of one of my favorite lecturers. Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, though an accomplished astrophysicist, his “down to earth” demeanor and attitude is what makes him extremely effective. Here is the video I am referring to:
I know we need many more teachers, professors and instructors just like him. Please do not let ideology cloud the issue and just let yourself comprehend what he is saying. I know many think that envisioning the cosmos is too difficult to do. The universe is a vast amount of time and area, but it not unfathomable as some think. Remember, everything is mathematics. All things (so far) explained, or accounted for, with mathematics. Now we need more individuals to take up the call to mathematics and physics so the human race can capitalize on what the universe has to offer us. It is a daunting task. Changing the way Science and Mathematics has a stigma of being too difficult to overcome is our hurdle for this generation and I dare say the coming one.
If we could get the children of today to be the scientists of tomorrow, our destination could actually be the stars in a relatively short amount of time. As we all should know, this great planet Earth will not last. It’s a scientific fact. So we have to decide if we are going to treat science like politicians or like scientists.
