By Kunal Pandey, Business Insider article When the editors of a famous science fiction novel got a piece of information from a fan, the novel became an instant classic.
And now, the book’s creator is taking it upon himself to share that information with the world.
In a recent episode of his podcast, The Science Show, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson shared details about a new project to help people understand the workings of the universe.
Tyson, a professor at the Johns Hopkins University, is known for his outspoken views on science and science education, and the book he wrote, “The Trouble with Tribes,” became a bestseller.
Tyson, who is currently traveling to India to teach classes on cosmology, has a number of books on his resume, including “Galactic Atlas” and “The Cosmic Wheel.”
He also wrote “A Universe From Nothing,” a book about how we humans created the universe and how we came to be.
Tales of how the universe came to exist, like the creation of the solar system and the formation of stars, are important for understanding our own place in it.
Tyson and his team are trying to help those with scientific questions find answers that will make them more informed.
The team has developed an app called The Universe From Everything that lets people share their own experiences, ideas and stories with the public.
Tyson says he hopes the app will help people see the universe in a different light.

Tayler’s app is still in its early days, and some users have reported issues.
But the team is working to improve it.
“The app is constantly evolving, and we are constantly looking at ways to improve the app,” Tyson says in a statement.
“We have a lot of ideas that we hope to expand the app to include more people and help them understand the world better.”
Our goal is to have the app available on all major platforms and platforms that are accessible to the masses,” he adds.
Tale’s app has been downloaded by more than 1 million people, according to the app store.
