At the NASA Advisory Council in Washington, D.C., November 2005

One of the best parts of the Colbert Report is the focus it will often place on science and technology. In early May for example he had a talk with astronaut Garrett Reisman on the International Space Station. Today he had Neil deGrasse Tyson on for the fifth time. He's one of those few people that is able to explain science to anybody without having it come out dry and boring.

Actually, Wikipedia is telling me that he was also on the Daily Show twice. Perhaps it's because he's just that interesting. They talked about dark matter and the Mars Phoenix lander, so it won't be news to anyone that knows the subject very well, but it's also just worth watching to see how science can be explained without sounding like a textbook all the time.

Here's the video:
