Dr. Tyson is one of the most passionate people I have seen in recent history. When Steven Colbert sits quietly in awe like a 3 year old on Christmas morning, you know you're doing something right.

You ain't kidding. He had Colbert speechless a few times. That in and of itself is a remarkable feat. Colbert was just soaking in it, loving it.

Just finished watching the Tyson interview, that was phenomenal. It's really enjoyable seeing Colbert just sit back and take it in.
