But Tyson is more known for being pretty much everywhere and spreading the word of science and reason. Whether it's CNN, Bill Maher or Conan, Tyson is really in a league of his own as a popular scientist.

His intellect is really only matched by his sense of humor which is why he is so relatable. So this Twitter event was particularly fun from the scientist as a total of 11 bar jokes and counting tally up on his Twitter feed.
