Science in divisive times…
Starry Messenger
Famed and acclaimed astrophysicist Tyson makes the case, in a very unexpected way, for the topic he loves most: science. “Starry Messenger” isn’t an exploration of scientific topics, but an argument for its use in divisive times. When we can’t agree on politics, religion, or acceptable social norms, Tyson asserts that the answers are found in science and the scientific method. Instead of basing our arguments on emotions and subjective beliefs, this enlightening read suggests sticking to rationality and fact.
