Mayor Ron Nirenberg met with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson for a brief Q&A session Wednesday before his talk at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. Their conversation was livestreamed as part of Nirenberg’s weekly “Ask Ron” session on Facebook live.

“Do you want to stop learning when you get out of high school, when you get out of college?” Tyson asked. “Rather than think of learning as a chore, you think of learning as the fulfillment of your curiosity.”

He also emphasized the importance of learning outside the classroom. 

“Everyone remembers the school trips you went on all the way back to elementary school,” he said. “You remember leaving school and going on a class trip, visiting the fire department or the post office.”
