Neil deGrasse Keynote Speaker

Neil deGrasse

Author, Professor, Research Assistant, Director, Communicator, Astrophysicist
The Neil deGrasse speeches examine the misconceived notion that private enterprises and privatizing will lead to a more advanced future in space exploration. deGrass believes that funding private enterprises will not increase how fast missions to space are launched and how much scientific progress is made with regard to space.

As an American astrophysicist and science communicator, deGrasse possess a thorough understanding of space exploration and galaxy purveying technologies. In terms of his education, Tyson earned a Bachelor of Arts in physics from Harvard University and his Master of Arts in Astronomy. He also holds a Master in Philosophy in astrophysics and a Ph.D. in astrophysics.

Currently, he is both the Frederk P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium and a research associate in the American Museum of Natural History's astrophysics department. Prior to this, deGrasse held teaching positions at University of Maryland and Princeton University. As a result of his astronomy expertise, deGrasse was appointed by President George W. Bush to serve on the 'Commission on the Future of the United States Aerospace Industry,' as well as the 'President's Commission on Implementation of United States Space Exploration Policy.'

deGrasse has been honored with countless awards like 'Medal of Excellence' from Columbia University and the 'NASA Distinguised Public Service Medal' due to his insightful research. He was also named one of 'Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world.'

deGrasse's extensive written work on space exploration and astronomy were featured and quoted in numerous publications including 'Natural History' magazine and 'The New York Times.' In conjunction with this, deGrasse also authored multiple space-oriented books such as ' Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier' and 'The Sky Is Not the Limit: Adventures of an Urban Astrophysicist.'

Although privatization does play a small role to place in space exploration, the Neil deGrasse speeches suggest that private enterprises should not be relied for the future of deep space exploration.
