Astrophysicist Neil de Gras Tyson will retain his job as head of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York after the museum finishes his investigation into charges of sexual abuse against him. The museum spokesman said Tyson "remains the employee and director of the Hayden Planetarium" based on the results of the investigation.
The statement says the museum staff will not comment further "because it's confidential personnel."
Tyson was accused of being inappropriate with two women in a Pateos article published last November.
In one episode of 2009, Calenn Alars, Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania, said Tyson had put his hand under the shoulder of her dress while studying her tattoo on the Solar System to check whether it involves Pluto. Aller said the behavior was "creepy."
