Outing deGrasse Tyson

You know how some sorts claim that people who have a negative attitude towards homosexuality are likely to harbor unacknowledged or repressed attraction towards the same sex? Well, the same thing seems to apply to astronomy and cosmology as well.

Well, You Know What They Say…

Now there’s a scandal that’s going to rock the halls of science. 😆 Then, so many of us already knew that the foremost Pluto hater in America, Neil deGrasse-Tyson was really on the DL.

Claim The High Seat

The Great Houses are arrayed and truly they do and shall vie with one another for supremacy.

Astronomy Is Looking Up

Nicolaus Copernicus founded science of modern astronomy in the 16th century. Since that time the science has been the abode of hoary old men and few women who preferred, or were resigned to, long lonely nights upon mountain tops. It was never known for its “hot chicks” or for much in the way of intrusion upon “pop culture.”

Fortunately, this just might be changing. 😉

Best Reason Ever To Keep Pluto A Planet

Geek Grrls, they’re not just saving science; they’re making it hot and embedding it in both their skin and American popular culture.
