Orlando seems to be drawing in all of the science celebrities this year. UCF brought in '90s-favorite Bill Nye two weeks ago, and now it's Neil deGrasse Tyson's turn.

The astrophysicist and Cosmos host is set to open up the Dr. Phillips Center's OUC Speakers series Nov. 15 at the Walt Disney Theater, says the center's press release.

Tyson's talk will delve into "science, exploration and the world as we know it," and hopefully a mic drop about the Earth not being flat

OUC Speakers will bring in presenters from various walks of life and with a range of opinions. Who those other speakers will be, however, has yet to be announced.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, April 1, and start at $45.
