There are few things more patriotic to Australians than the Southern Cross.  Appearing on our national flag and many a tattoo, the Southern Cross has guided travelers, inspired writers and symbolised our national pride.

Shortly after landing down under, the world’s most famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has been sharing his thoughts on everything Aussie, from the iconic constellation to our electrical outlets.
