Weekly Roundup – Neil deGrasse Tyson, Gary Hirshberg, Robert Kirshner

Happy Wednesday! Let’s see what our speakers are up to this week:


Neil deGrasse Tyson is amused to learn that NBA player Kyrie Irving thinks the world is flat. Well, so are we, for that matter …


Blue Apron, the quickly-growing meal/ingredient delivery service, has added Gary Hirshberg  (founder of Stonyfield Farms Yogurt) to its board of directors. Smart move.


This year marks the 30th anniversary of one of the Hubble Space Telescopes signature discoveries. “The 30 years’ worth of observations of SN 1987A are important because they provide insight into the last stages of stellar evolution,” said Dr. Robert Kirshner, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
