    Has anyone seen Neil actually perform any feats of mathematical genius or solve any groundbreaking theorems? For that matter has anyone seen Colbert present anything other than politically correct liberal BS? Neil, please prove you are worthy of more than being a liberal mouthpiece by actually applying your vastly superior IQ to the current problem concerning a theory of everything or be complacent in your role as a wannabe politician. You are a smooth talker, no doubt, but a physicist? I sincerely doubt it.

    I would just like to rebuke Neil on everything that he says especially about God. Think about this people and Niel,!??? What came first sci-fi or your modern version of science so called??? Everything he speaks about are what he and others "imagined" when we were little children watching star-treck, marvel comics.etc And then Neil and everyone else who considers themselves wise but are foolish, went to school, college, university , Holding on to the beliefs and vain imaginations of sci-fi movies and comics ,go into your "profesion" And everything you have put before your eyes, because you believe it becomes true to you! And then the more people who are joined in one mind believing these vain imaginations and by mass spiritual consent this is what you manifest!!! Tell us what happened before the so called big bang? Or what I believe, God's big loud voice? If you want us all to jump the pen before our lord Jesus Christ returns then why don't you put your money where your mouth is and lead by example , get on the next rocket booked for mars or whare ever you imagine that you want everyone else to go? The great dragon shall be cast down to earth just as God says. I rebuke you Neil deGrasse Tyson , for the sake of our mighty Father in heaven, I AM the Lord God of Israel in the name of Jesus Christ. Repent/turn away from all vain imaginations. The people are in more need of help with love not sci-fi. Anyone who believes that God sent his only begotten son the master builder of all the earth , Jesus Christ of nazerith and believe in your heart shall be saved if you confess with your mouth and believe in your 💓

Mats is loaded with xenon from nuclear type war and has a very damaged moon. HOW COULD TYSON NOT KNOW THAT?

    You can hear the fear to say something wrong in his voice, it’s scary to think that someone will go out of their way to destroy your reputation for no reason other than to appeal to their own self-interest. In this case, bringing themselves into public light by destroying another person’s own. People are sick.

I think I better go with your pronunciation, maybe that's safe lol. Apparently the H is silent. Who would have thought it? You learn something new every day. What else are we mispronouncing?

    First of all Alan Moore wrote that years ago so no reason for applause. Second, this guy speculates based on scientific ( limited ) knowledge. Implying how an alien form of life would act, do or not do, is like knowing how it thinks. He keeps talking about human weaknesses yet there is mostly arrogance in his speeches. He should know enough to realize that as humans we know nothing at all.

    NDT went into this in a recent StarTalk episode and Googling it now, there are articles on it anyway, but if you take the spearmint molecule and reverse it, it would taste like caraway. Spearmint and caraway are chiral molecules (same atoms and hence same chemical formula, but mirror image).

    John: "What did you learn?" Neil: “I learned that I had friends, in times of need, in times of stress. That’s what I learned from this year.” MeToo taught him NOTHING. It just shamed him. He continues: “As a scientist, most of my time I’m thinking objectively about the world, thinking a little bit less bout emotions and feelings, and when I needed it most people were there for me.”
