I am pleased to report that Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson will giveĀ the Distinguished Lecture at the University of Iowa IMU Main Lounge at 7:30pm on Monday April 15, 2013 as part of the University Lecture Committee’s Spring lecture schedule.

Dr. Tyson is theĀ Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium in the Department of Astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. He is one of the world’s best public lecturers on the importance of science and science education, particularly on the topic of astrophysics and the origin of the universe.

He’s also very funny. For more, watch the video with Stephen Colbert.
