Astrophysicist and all-around awesome guy Neil deGrasse Tyson has an IAmA on Reddit right now.
Ask this genius anything. He’s offering to answer your questions.
Here’s an example of the questions—these people know their stuff:
If you could change one thing about how the sciences are taught to American children, what would it be?
neiltyson: Create a goal state for educational pipeline to see in broad daylight - some ambitious mission - like a voyage to mars - that is so compelling that the quality of your science teacher is irrelevant. Your consequent ambitions trump all other forces.
Viktorious_ATL: Nanoscientist here. Is there a secret society I can join to help fight for science?
carneval: Full sized scientist here, I’d also like to know the answer to this question.
mackenzie17: Macroscientist here, I’ll devour you all!
curtains: Quantum scientist here. Now I’m not.
JediExile: Dammit, I observed you.
liquix: I’m not a scientist, still laughed.
Piscator629: I am a scientist from the 5th dimension . Why is purple?
