SEATTLE -- Renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson always finds a way to take the complicated language of science and make them easily digestible for those of us who don't speak it fluently.

He also often uses science as a parallel to engage in discussions about social issues.

Tyson has done it again following the massacre at an Orlando gay-friendly nightclub. He used a series of tweets about the science of rainbows to reach out to the LGBT community.
