Posts from the ‘Neil deGrasse Tyson’ Category

If we don’t build the land, somebody else will and the science will get discovered.  If we don’t explore the moons, somebody else will.  It will get discovered.  That’s one of the hallmarks of science that distinguishes it from art.  In science, if you don’t do it, somebody else will.  Whereas in art, if Beethoven didn’t compose the Ninth Symphony, no one else before or after is going to compose the Ninth Symphony that he composed, no one else is going to paint Starry Night by van Gogh.  So science, when done properly, is never owned by one nation or another.
— Neil deGrasse Tyson, Competition in Science


I’d rather we explore each other’s ideas in real time, rather than assign a label to it and assert you know what’s going to happen in advance.

There’s no science in this post. I just know we’re all gonna want to save this picture for future reference.

What’s the context here? Who is Dr. Tyson flipping the bird to?
