The astrophysicist, author and champion of science Neil deGrasse Tyson is more than comfortable taking on the very biggest of subjects. The director New York City’s Hayden Planetarium and host of the 21st-century edition of the documentary series Cosmos, Tyson is the author of a raft of bestsellers that unveil the mysteries of the universe, from the Higgs Boson to black holes.

To find out, we visited Tyson in his offices for a talk about telescopes, spy satellites, and the future of science.
