Welcome To The Universe is a personal guided tour of the cosmos by three of today's leading astrophysicists.  Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michael A Strauss and J. Richard Gott cover everything from planets, stars, and galaxies to black holes, wormholes, and time travel. How do stars live and die?  Why did Pluto lose its planetary status?  What are the prospects of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe? How did the universe begin and why is it expanding at an accelerating pace?  Welcome To The Universe is for those who hunger for insights into our evolving universe that only world-class astrophysicists can provide.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History, author of numerous books including his newest release Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, and host of the acclaimed series StarTalk.
