Even in slow motion, we still have a badass over here.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is already awesome at regular speed. When he’s slowed down? It’s harder to understand him, but that doesn’t make him any less captivating to watch. Here he is rocking slow-mo in a 2011 interview about his idol, Sir Isaac Newton, that resonated with many of us (and created a meme).

He sounds and looks tired—maybe even stoned. But he still knows his stuff, and we’re still fascinated.
