Face of the Day

It’s not often I strike out on Face of the Day when I can’t find a local political story, an overseas political story or an overseas general interest story that’s current and dominating the news.  But I finally got there.  So I’ve had to resort to “who has a birthday on October 5th?”

About
Astrophysicist who has attempted to bring science to the mainstream with shows like NOVA ScienceNow, an educational science program he hosted on PBS from 2006 to 2011. He played a major role in dismissing Pluto’s classification as a planet. He hosted the 2014 science documentary series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey and he also hosts the popular weekly radio show Star Talk.

Before Fame
He earned a PhD in astrophysics from Columbia University in 1991 and during his collegiate years he was on the rowing and the wrestling team.

Trivia
In 2001, US President George W. Bush appointed him to serve on the Commission on the Future of the United States Aerospace Industry and in 2004 he earned the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal.

I am a big fan of this man and his ability to make others excited about science.
