Voice: Neil deGrasse Tyson
Neil deGrasse Tyson's NYC public school education served him well. Perhaps the world's most renowned astrophysicist, Tyson holds a BA in Physics from Harvard and a PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia, was chosen twice to inform former President Bush on space-related topics, and has served on NASA's prestigious Advisory Council. He has authored nine books — one of them a New York Times bestseller — and has hosted two PBS series: Origins and NOVA ScienceNOW as well as the radio program Star Talk. We're honored that Tyson chose to "star" as the voice of the GeoSafari® Talking Planetary Mat!
