Neil deGrasse Tyson's tenth book, Space Chronicles: Facing The Ultimate Frontier is available as of February 27, 2012.
Neil was interviewed by HuffPo and shared his passion for investing in the space program. "..it's every thought I've ever had about our past, present, and future in space, and the relationship of space exploration to culture. Space exploration is hard. It takes great investments, and my goal here is to get people to recognize that when a nation dreams big, its citizenry dreams big. And the dreaming big part is what makes tomorrow come. And in fact, my real target are adults, because first, they outnumber kids. And, kids are all scientists anyway."
A favorite of subscribers since his first special on the network in 1989, Maher has starred in nine solo specials on HBO, including the hour-long presentations “Bill Maher…But I’m Not Wrong,” “The Decider” and “I’m Swiss” (both nominated for an Emmy® in the Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special category), “Victory Begins at Home,” “Be More Cynical,” “The Golden Goose Special” and “Stuff That Struck Me Funny,” and two half-hour stand-up specials, plus the HBO specials “30 Seconds Over Washington” and “Comic Relief VI™.”
Maher was the creator and host of “Politically Incorrect,” which was produced by HBO Downtown Productions and debuted on Comedy Central in 1993. The series moved to ABC in 1997 and ran through 2002.
His latest book, “The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody but Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass,” was published in November and made the New York Times bestseller list. Maher’s 2006 book, “New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer,” also made the New York Times bestseller list, as well as bestseller lists across the country. He is also author of the books “When You Ride Alone You Ride with Bin Laden: What the Government Should Be Telling Us to Help Fight the War on Terrorism,” “Does Anybody Have a Problem with That?
