Neil deGrasse Tyson, Eminent Cartoon

He’s a world-renowned astrophysicist. He’s a radio show host. He’s been on all sorts of TV shows, including hosting PBS’ NOVA ScienceNOW and a memorable guest shot on The Big Bang Theory.

The episode airs on July 15th; Check, as they say, your local listings. Oh, and Martha’s a talking dog, in case you were wondering about that.
