As much time as I spend searching for this sort of thing, I cannot believe I never found this.

Rtambree might be right in that I only learned a few new facts (what lead to certain discoveries, how they were later confirmed and several back-stories of older breakthroughs for example), this was highly entertaining and something my grandson will watch tonight.

Tyson is a great raconteur and a bit of a scientific Hitch in that he seems to remember everything he has ever learned and is able to weave his knowledge (even the minutia) into his answers to add sense and humor to complex issues.

Best hour and a half I have spent in some time looking at one of my magical glass boxes.
