@ARunningList: #degrasse talking about how Cosmos is not about knowledge but feeling and understanding your place in the world. #SXSW

@cjovalle: To feel knowledge alters your perspective on the world... helps you take ownership of that knowledge. #sxsw #degrasse

@mgherron: "My personal definition of science literacy is how much do you still wonder about the world around you?" #sxsw #askneil #deGrasse

@lisiaf: RT @cjovalle: "A scientist is just a kid who never grew up." #sxsw #degrasse

@benmreid: RT @Chuparkoff: "You kid will bang on pots and pans. This is an experiment in acoustics! Let her bang." says @neiltyson at #cosmos #deGrass

@carmenhill: There's no physics in the # of things. Don't get attached to the # of, say, planets. There are 8. Get over it. @neiltyson #sxsw #degrasse

@lisiaf: RT @junascimento: “@clevrcat: "You don't want to do experiments that take longer than your life expectancy." - @neiltyson #degrasse #sxsw #…

@TheNapkinDad: 150,000 years to get to the nearest likely life bearing planet. Trying to figure it out without going there is a good idea. #degrasse #sxsw
