The StarTalk radio show with host Neil deGrasse Tyson is coming to television, as reports indicate that National Geographic has picked up the show with the intent of integrating it into NatGeoTV.
The StarTalk radio show features astrophysicist and Hayden Planetarium director Tyson as its host and an array of comical co-hosts, scientists and featured celebrities.
The science educator, American cosmologist and author Neil deGrasse, was born in Manhattan, New York City, back in 1958. Presently age 56, the Big Apple native has received NASA’s Distinguished Public Service Medal, appointed back in 2004, and the Lopsteg Memorial Award, which was presented to him back in 2007.
The Wall Street Journal reported that he wishes scientific research would get more money from the government.
Dr. Tyson, who has been employed in the position of director at the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History since 1996, is well known as the charismatic star and host of the documentary series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.
The entertaining media personality and scientist tweeted to his more than 3 million Twitter followers that it would “be cool if space aliens landed on Earth” and asked us to take them to our “common people!”

Tyson studied at Harvard University, the University of Texas at Austin, and Columbia University. His thesis paper, which was completed back in 1991, was titled: A study of the abundance distributions along the minor axis of the Galactic bulge.
He claims to love science, being why his office is covered with posters of planets and moons, according to a report on Perfect Science.
