Neil deGrasse Tyson Coming to Comerica Theatre in Downtown Phoenix

Of all the places in the cosmos, Neil deGrasse Tyson is coming to Phoenix.

In addition to serving as America's favorite astrophysicist, Tyson hosts the StarTalk podcast and presented Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. You probably also recognize him from guest appearances on The Colbert Report and The Daily Show.

Soon, he'll take his big ideas on the road and lecture on cool science-y things (probably a few of which will pertain to his 18 honorary doctorates) at downtown Phoenix's Comerica Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 12, 2016.

If you're looking to expand your horizons universe, you can purchase tickets for "An Evening with Neil deGrasse Tyson" starting at 10 a.m. Friday, November 6, via Live Nation
