You don't have to be a rocket scientist to love this Libra!

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to love this Libra!

Not all the stars are in Hollywood, and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has done his best to introduce as many as he can to the world! Growing up, he was a big fan of Carl Sagan, and he fondly remembers when Dr. Sagan tried to recruit him to Cornell. Tyson went to Harvard instead, but he now follows in Sagan's footsteps as host of Fox's Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.

Like all Libras, he wears many hats. A college wrestler, rower, and dancer (winner of a national Latin ballroom competition), today he's a research scientist, author, and collector of fine wines. With Libran good humor he's taken the flak for downgrading Pluto from planetary status.

He takes controversy in stride: "You've got to be so deeply in love with your subject that when curve balls are thrown, when hurdles are put in place, you've got the energy to overcome them."
