Video: How do you look at the world & being scientifically literate W/ Neil deGrasse Tyson

“People think that science literacy is being able to recite facts. And it’s not that. It’s a part of it, but it’s not the main part. The main part is, how do you look at the world? What does the world look like through your lens? If you’re scientifically literate, the world looks very different to you. It’s not just a lot of mysterious things happening. There’s a lot we understand out there. And that understanding empowers you to first, not be taken advantage of by others who do understand it. And second, there are issues that confront society that have science as their foundation.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson
