Neil deGrasse Tyson is about the only truly famous astrophysicist we have these days, but boy has he taken off like a rocket (pun most definitely intended). Through countless televisions appearances and a strong online presence, the Hayden Planetarium director has gained quite the pop culture status.

Science is fascinating, fun, and invaluable. That’s what I take from Neil deGrasse Tyson.

As a fan of Tyson, you can imagine my delight when I noticed that he was about to live-tweet Tuesday night’s MLB All-Star game:

This was probably the best thing on Twitter in quite some time. I hope that he makes a habit of this. I’d love to see the Super Bowl, The Masters, the NBA Finals, and even a Tennis tournament here and there through his eyes.
