I’m sure few of you realize this, but I am generally very hesitant about posting videos on Global Geek News for reasons ranging from my hatred of Flash to bandwidth reasons to the viewing problems on mobile devices.  But, every once in a while, I come across a video that is so awesome that I make an exception and post it.  This is one of those times.  Back on January 29th, 2010, popular Comedy Central personality Stephen Colbert sat down and did an interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson at Montclair Kimberley Academy in front of a large audience and even though the video of it is nearly an hour and a half long, it is definitely worth watching.  The interview part doesn’t start until about the 6 minute mark but if you are at all interested in science, space, technology or just want a few laughs, you NEED to watch this video.  It is both hilarious and inspiring.
