Science as a topic and scientists as characters have recently seen a rise in representation in media, much to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s delight.

In a new featurette, Tyson discusses the works of Stephen Hawking as profiled in the new movie The Theory of Everything. While the movie concentrates more on Hawking’s personal life, in the video, Tyson touches more on his scientific discoveries that may have been missed. He particularly singles out Hawking Radiation, a breakthrough Hawking made regarding black holes.

He also mentions the portrayal of scientists in pop culture, saying he’s “enchanted” they have captured the attention of moviemakers lately.

Watch the video below! And if that’s not enough, check out our interview with the film’s producer, Lisa Bruce here.
