On The Verge is back! The show returns Friday, March 23rd, 2012, with a very special guest: Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. Dr. Tyson is an Astrophysicist, recently published his tenth book (Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier), and has made numerous appearances on television. Recently some of Dr. Tyson's captivating pro-NASA statements have been tied to a new project aimed at raising awareness and money for what NASA stands for.
We're also excited to have Blip Blip Bleep as a special musical guest along with the usual news, videos, and hilarious interludes.
