    BuzzFeed News has released a comprehensive report on the star astrophysicist's alleged sexual misconduct that it had been in the works for three years, utilizing interviews with more than 30 people. It includes the two most recent allegations that came to light last Friday and an old allegation of rape from the 1980s. "Now a fourth woman has told BuzzFeed News her experience of sexual harassment from Tyson," reports Buzzfeed News' Azeen Ghorayshi. "In January 2010, she recalled, she joined her then-boyfriend at a holiday party for employees of the American Museum of Natural History. Tyson, its most famous employee, drunkenly approached her, she said, making sexual jokes and propositioning her to join him alone in his office. In a 2014 email shared with BuzzFeed News, she described the incident to her own employer in order to shoot down a proposed collaboration with Tyson."
