There is no view of the world as emotionally potent as the one granted by a cosmic perspective. It’s one that sees Earth as a planet in a vast empty universe. Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson explores how this perspective profoundly influences what we think and feel about science, culture, politics, and life itself at Civic Center Music Hall on Oct. 5, 2021.
