When Neil DeGrasse Tyson was a kid, he had a plan: he wanted to be an astrophysicist. But the adults around him had other plans. They thought he’d make a great athlete. But Neil stuck to his guns, and now he’s one of the most famous astrophysicists in the world – heck, one of the only famous astrophysicists in the world. 

But how did he persevere? Or, to use his words: why was it that he took the “path of most resistance” when there were plenty of other, easier paths around him? Ultimately, it was his passion for the universe itself that kept him going. 

How can you not love Neil.
