What comes across with immediacy is how much fun Tyson, director of New York City’s Hayden Planetarium, finds in astronomy and how much he wants listeners to enjoy it, too. Narrator Dion Graham captures the astronomer’s excited, sometimes ironic, tone to perfection. Tyson’s commentary runs the gamut—from pointing out errors in the science of his favorite sci-fi movies to describing the grisly details of what would happen to a person who fell into a black hole. The production is great for the nonscientist who likes to stay up-to-date with what’s going on in astronomy. The combination of a passionate scientist who entertains and a narrator who completely captures the author’s style and intent is powerfully enjoyable. D.G.
