I can’t not share this.
Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson is the director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, a renowned astrophysicist and my personal hero. Unsurprisingly then, he’s also a well-known advocate for increasing NASA’s budget, not only for the sake of exploration but for the sake of giving us all a space program to marvel at and aspire to again. He’s passionate. Maybe a little too passionate.
Tyson is just as well-known for supplying the internet with wonderful GIFs and memes due to his animated nature (no pun intended, truly). Dr. Tyson’s reactions have been captured and put into hundreds, maybe even thousands of GIFs (if not some even bigger, more impressive number than that!). While a quick web search will give you lots to giggle at, the classic “Neil deGrasse Tyson eye-roll” is my favorite. It’s to the point and utilitarian. Have you ever reached a level of exasperation or disappointment so profound that normal expression of your emotions just wouldn’t do? In the future, make good use of this guy and let someone have it!
