Hold on to your jet packs! We're pleased to announce our first keynote speaker for ONWARD18 — astrophysicist and science communicator, Neil deGrasse Tyson. Tyson is the author of the New York Times bestseller "Astrophysics for People in a Hurry" and the creator of StarTalk radio. He explains science in terms we not only understand but crave.
The theme for this year's ONWARD is "knowledge is power," and who better to impart galactic know-how than Neil deGrasse Tyson. Tyson is the recipient of twenty honorary doctorates and the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, the highest award given by NASA to a non-government citizen. On top of this, Tyson is the fifth head of the world-renowned Hayden Planetarium in New York City and the first occupant of its Frederick P. Rose Directorship. He is also a research associate of the Department of Astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History.
Dr. Tyson bagged two awards last year alone: the Stephen Hawking Medal for Science Communication, and the Hubbard Medal from the National Geographic Society. Not to mention a Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word Album of his bestseller. While those are just his most recent distinctions, it puts him in the company of Jane Goodall and the late Stephen Hawking.
