    For us to have such an understanding of our place in the universe w/ only this grey matter in our heads, "We are special because we are all the same"
    He acknowledged God when he acknowledged "Spiritual" Neil is awesome because Neil is modern sensibility

    I love Neil deGrasse Tyson for so many reasons, but one of my favorite things about him is that no matter what interview he is doing, whether it be for TV, for radio, for podcast, even for the red carpet, no matter who is interviewing him, he always manages to blow their mind and make them shut up longer than they ever have for any guest

    Hahaha the self-aware irony of Neil deGrasse Tyson as he paints this beautiful imagery about the humbling perspective of the universe, then a switch to how we fit into the cosmos story unfolding, all followed up with an outright plug for his own book was hilarious.

    Imagine how much we could advance human civilization if everybody contributed to science with the same passion and mentality as Neil 💁🏽‍♂️ he's such a great guy and he's even influenced me to do my own research *None of my teachers can do that* He just makes science so easily understandable it almost seems fake.

  • PCoderch
    PCoderch Month ago +1

    I think the reason for the popularity of NDT is that he's the rare scientist that is not very nerdy and is actually charming and engaging. A lot of "normal" people get put off by the coldness of most scientists, as well as their lack of charm, wit and ability to engage people on a personal rather than just logical manner.
