The apparent exoneration of Tyson follows other misconduct accusations against the famous astrophysicist/TV personality last November. Those complaints prompted Fox, Nat Geo and the series producers to launch a probe.
While it was ongoing, Fox and Nat Geo put on hold the Season 2 premiere of science docuseries Cosmos, originally slated for March 3, 2019. Meanwhile, Nat Geo pulled its Tyson-hosted StarTalk off the air after the new allegations surfaced.
In the Hayden Planetarium case, two women accused Tyson of sexual misconduct in an article that appeared last November. One, a Bucknell University professor, alleged Tyson examined her solar system tattoo and then “followed the tattoo into” her dress. In a separate incident, a former assistant on his Cosmos show claimed he made uncomfortable sexual advances.
Cosmos and StarTalk returned to Fox and National Geographic’s lineups after their investigations.
