Since I already posted the new episode of Danger 5 yesterday, I thought I’d give you folks something even better today: it’s a video of Stephen Colbert (out of character) interviewing Neil Degrasse Tyson for 90 minutes (the interview itself starts around six minutes in).

It’s a fantastic read, an emotional sucker-punch with a fist full of car keys that left me speechless with its honesty and immediacy. Very quickly after I started — within the first 25 pages, I’d say — it made the list of my favorite books. But there’s another reason I decided to give Collins’ work a plug today: Lionsgate is making a movie, and if the new full-length trailer is any indication, it looks *freaking awesome*.

(More after the break. Much more.)
