Watch: Neil DeGrasse Tyson Tells 6-Year-Old Girl to Splash in Puddles, and It's Amazing
We first got to know astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson when he hosted the Fox documentary seriesCosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey. But his latest stunt is truly out-of-this-world brilliant.
Tyson was lecturing at the College of the Holy Cross in Worchester, Massachusetts, when a 6-year-old girl asked what first-graders can do to help the Earth. What follows is a fist-pumping dialogue about why kids should be allowed to explore:
"If it's raining out and there's a big puddle, what do you want to do with that puddle?" he asks.
"Jump in it," she replies.
Tyson quips: "Just tell your parents that they're experiments, and you want to become a scientist, and then they won't stop you from doing anything you want."
More women in science? Nowthat'sa parenting philosophy we can get behind.
