Neil deGrasse Tyson Moonwalking

A couple weeks ago, we showed you the Pre-History of Michael Jackson’s Moonwalk, highlighting a medley of the fancy foot moves of Cab Calloway, Sammy Davis Jr., Fred Astaire and some lesser-known figures like Rubberneck Holmes and Earl “Snakehips” Tucker. Someone could just as easily make another montage, a Post-History of Michael Jackson’s Moonwalk, and it would surely have to include the clip above. It features our favorite astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson strutting his stuff at StarTalk Live last year. In the background, you can see another great moonwalker, Buzz Aldrin, on the stage.

Episode #9 of Tyson’s Cosmos reboot airs on Fox tonight. US viewers can watch episodes 1-8 on Hulu here. The original Cosmos with Carl Sagan appears here.
