Neil deGrasse Tyson reveals meaning of life to 6-year-old

Screen Shot 2015-01-17 at 3.31.52 PMAt a speech in Boston, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson took a crowd question from a curious 6-and-three-quarters-year-old boy named Jack.

The question was a simple one, “What is the meaning of life?”

Tyson, after a laugh, told Jack that he defines the meaning of life as learning continuously everyday.

He added, “For you, at age six and three quarters, may I suggest that… you should explore nature as much as you possibly can.”

Tyson then gave Jack permission to get his clothes dirty and bang on pots and pans in the name of science.
