Neil DeGrasse Tyson Has The Best Answer When A Little Girl Asks If He Knows Any Dyslexic Scientists

May 5, 2015 By Archit Tripathi
Neil deGrasse Tyson, brilliant astrophysicist and beloved television personality, is everywhere these days. When he's not expanding millions of minds via his show "Cosmos," he's giving inspiring talks and spreading the love of science. He's also hugely popular online, which probably has a lot to do with the fact that he's always getting into heartwarming moments like this one.

When a little girl asks him if he knows people in the sciences with dyslexia, he could have just said "yes" and moved on. Instead, he takes an opportunity to disclose some humorous anecdotes about the myriad of learning disabilities his colleagues have and the ways in which they've learned to manage those tendencies and be successful and productive. By the way, the dyslexia of numbers that Tyson was trying to recall is called dyscalculia.
