4.0 star rating Theresa Haley from Houston, Texas


Neil Degrasse Tyson was entertaining and informative on the topic. He has a great sense of humor and shows his human side as well. He seems to be a gracious, considerate and yet, very logical man. The show was great and he wanted to make sure we were comfortable with time. Neil definitely makes you have a different perspective on planetary and space travel and its possibilities. What a brilliant astrophysicist and man!!!

3.0 star rating Anne Lucier from Denver, Colorado


I was very anxious for this event and disappointed in Neil's tardiness. While the movie information was interesting and fun, I was hoping to learn more from the event last evening. I have enjoyed watching Cosmos on Netflix and look forward to the new series. It would have been nice to have questions and answers from the audience at the end. Two hours was long and the seats were very uncomfortable. Nice socks.

I'll start by saying Dr. Tyson is personable and often times funny. However, my husband and I attended the show in the hopes that we would learn something. What we found was it was superficial conversation about very general topics. Perhaps we misunderstood but seriously, this was a rather juvenile presentation. We found the Q&A's at the end of the show to be more interesting than most of the presentation. With that said, the show started 1/2 hour late, which was rude. Dr. Tyson gave an explanation that he'd been traveling the world – that's great for you and I'm sure the majority were duly impressed. However, you had an auditorium full of people who paid for tickets to your show, who were not shown the respect they deserved.

Dr. Tyson is one of my heroes! The presentation Wednesday was disappointing. I don't know what I expected but this was not it. It was a tour down memory lane with photos and videos of rockets and big-fined automobiles and government funding vs private capitalist of space exploration.. Sigh

2.0 star rating Doug Souza from Washington, District of Columbia


Tyson blind sided us by out of nowhere starts talking about 9/11. This did not fit into the rest of the show. Using photos and videos of people jumping out of buildings etc was ethically questionable at least. The message from Tyson’s pictures was look at how close I was. His comments about the physics of this tragedy were cold. I remember that day vividly and lost colleagues. To get a 57 year old man sobbing and weeping in his chair and have to leave to throw up in a performance is not ok. Shame on you Tyson. To use one of this country’s days in history to sell your book is terrible. Self promotion at the expense of respect for the dead is Inexcusable. My copy of the book handed to me is in the trash can. Shame on you. Shame shame shame

2.0 star rating Tevans from Dallas, Texas


My wife and I had much higher expectations for an educational evening. The show began with 15 minutes of political commentary on red vs. blue in Texas, COVID, and the acceptance of vaccines across demographic strata. Really Neil? We came to experience your renowned expertise and experience as an astrophysicist, not your political viewpoints! The next 10 minutes was spent promoting his books. Finally on to the show. Not serious, too many lame jokes (including farts), and more self promotion including his past tweets. If you're looking for superficial information on the universe supplemented by NASA videos and wrapped in ego and bad attempts at humor, this is your show. If you're seeking a more serious educational experience, take a pass.

2.0 star rating L.Hoffman from Memphis, Tennessee


When Dr. Tyson asked at the beginning of his presentation if anyone had been to one of his talks, no one raised their hand. Now I know it’s because once is enough. The first 20 minutes were political opinions with nothing to do with astronomy. Then there was the obligatory book promotion. Scattered throughout were the “clever tweets” self promotion. Finally, the astronomy was basic information easily found by reading a news site. I was disappointed as he skimmed the surface of black holes, dark energy, dark matter and quantum entanglement. I think Dr. Tyson underestimated his audience’s interest and intelligence. I taught most of his content including using some of the same videos to 8th grade science students. While he is a good speaker and very entertaining, if you are looking for deeper information I recommend skipping this “show.”
